Moi Girls High School, Nairobi, has been closed for one week following alleged rape of students on Saturday morning.
Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohammed made the announcement on Sunday morning after holding a second meeting with the school management at the institution.
There was unrest in the school on Saturday following rape allegations meted on a student by a gang of three men.
Three other students are said to have been assaulted by the same gang that was hiding in the school’s bathroom.
CS Amina has stated that the government will conduct a security assessment at the institution, adding that they will use the incident to formulate a security policy for schools countrywide.
She, however, said investigators need more time to probe the incident, vowing to ensure all those responsible are brought to book.
