Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed has dissolved the board of Moi Girls’ School in Nairobi after a student was raped in the dorm.
At the same time, the school’s principal Jael Mureithi has taken an early early retirement following the saga.
Also dissolved is the school’s parents and teachers association, with parents set to meet the remaining school managers on Sunday.
The developments came today as the government cracked down on officials of the school that has been in the news lately for all the wrong reasons.
Ms Mohamed ordered overhaul of security at the school on a 42-acre parcel in Kibra Constituency.
Once the security changes are made, she said, students, teachers, workers and all visitors entering the school must be subjected to checks round the clock.
The principal’s early retirement comes a day after detectives from the division of Serious Crimes Investigations and the Government Chemist took samples from eight staff members, including six teachers, for forensic analysis.
The DNA tests will either place the eight suspects at the scene of crime or exonerate them.
