Meanwhile The Supreme Court has overturned a Court of Appeal ruling allowing Muslim students to wear hijabs in school. In a triumph for the Methodist Church of Kenya, the court in a majority decision on Thursday said the ruling by the Appellate court was against the school uniform policy. The judges ruled that every school has a right to determine its rules. The church, which sponsors St. Paul's Kiwanjani Secondary School in Isiolo, appealed against the Court of Appeal decision. A parent had complained about the suspension but the High Court sided with the school.
