Kipsigis Girls high school in Kericho County has today been closed indefinitely and students ordered to go home until further notice following unrest among the students today according to a Facebook post by Martin Kosgey at around 12.30 pm.
The post read “students home! Kipsigis Girls High School in Kericho Closed until further notice.” Earlier on Kosgey also shared a video of the students on Facebook rioting in the streets of Kericho town at 4 am today while protesting against their new principal.
In the latest swapping of principals, Kipsigis Girls Principal Madam Juliana Kirui was transferred to Moi Girls Eldoret and Madam Christine Chumba from Moi Girls Eldoret moved to the Kericho based school. Students however rejected the move demanding that Madam Kirui to be retained.

Kosgey had also reported around 9 am that the Ministry of Education had urged the students to calm down and go back to school as they sought out the problem something which they obeyed.
Many thought that the issue had been solved only to receive news on the closure of the school a few moments ago. We hope a solution will be found so that students can resume learning.
