Kisumu Girls High School in Kisumu County has been closed indefinitely.
According to reports, the school was closed on Sunday following sustained unrest from students. Some of the students lamented there was an inhabitable environment at the school.
This came a day after the Ministry of Education announced the official closing dates for schools countrywide.
A section of the students reportedly demanded the resignation of the current principal. The chants at the national school prompted police officers to be summoned to restore peace on Sunday morning.
