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 opted for early retirement, according to the Teachers Service Commission.
Also dissolved was the school’s parents and teachers association, with parents set to meet the remaining school managers on Sunday.
The developments came on Tuesday 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.
