A secondary school in Embu county has been closed indefinitely following rumors that students had vowed to strike unless they were awarded a mid-term break.
According to Prime news, the students of ACK St. Francis Kanja secondary school had demanded the institution to give them a half-term holiday after which the school allegedly objected.

The students are then said to have boycotted to eat on Tuesday evening — something that aroused suspicion on school administration, who subsequently sent them home today in the morning as a measure to prevent the alleged strike from happening.
Their plea comes even as the government excluded mid-term break in Term Two of the school calendar in an attempt to recover the time that was lost in 2020 due to Covid-19 epidemic that saw schools being closed for the better part of the year.
