Students of Lugulu girls’ national school in Bungoma county today held demos protesting the rape of one of them.
This was after one of the students identified as Sherry was raped on Saturday morning at the school’s bathroom at Muliro house as she was taking a birth before the morning preps.
Learning was paralised at the school as irate students began the protests on Monday night.
The 306 candidates who walked for six kilometers from Lugulu to Webuye police station demanded the immediate arrest of the perpetrator whom they claimed was being protected by the schools principal Dinaa Cheruiyot.
“On several occasions, an unknown male sneaked into our hostels and switched off the lights and whenever we raise the matter with the school management, they ignore us,” said one of the students.
The students who carried placards and sung protests songs demanded justice for one of them whom they said her future had been ruined by the perpetrator.
