Moi girls High school Nairobi has been closed for one week following the rape allegations of three students within the institutions.

Education CS Amina Mohamed announced the closure after a meeting with the institutions management. She said that the closure would allow the government to conduct a security assessment and also ensure that the culprits of the incident are brought to book.

Reports emerged of students being raped by armed men who crossed the fence of the school. The students who were affected were rushed to Nairobi Women’s hospital where the rape was confirmed after examination.
