Student Dies in School as Riots Erupt Forcing School Closure

Riots erupted in one girls' school in Rift Valley following the death if one student alleged to have succumbed to Covid-19 related complications. The school called parents to pick the students who caused unrest at night.

The Ngeria Girls High School students claimed that there has been an increase in the number of Covid-19 Infections in their school and that the school administration was doing nothing about it. This forced the school principal to indefinitely close the school until the matter is solved.

Further reports however revealed that the student in question had pre-existing conditions which led to her demise. She was diagnosed with leukemia and the school principal had difficult time convincing students. They became too agitated to be controlled leaving the administration with no choice than send them back home.

"We got messages from the institution asking us to go and pick our children from school," said one of the parents whose daughter had just joined form one. Some expressed their disappointment as the students had hardly settled for the term.

The Uasin Gishu County Commissioner confirmed the case saying that its yet to be determined what exactly was the cause of the deceased's death. The school is second to close down after Arnesen's Boys High School after the death of a Form One student.
