The government has also dissolved Moi Girls' School Nairobi's Board of Management and Parents Association with immediate effect with the CS announcing that all staff will be vetted afresh.
"The Moi Girls case is a wake-up call As a Ministry we are going to put policies in place and take necessary measures to ensure that the schools are as safe as they can be. We all have to play a role as parents, teachers and society at large," CS Amina stated.
"Education CS Amina Mohammed on security: I wish I could say conclusively that security of our children is guaranteed as it should but I cannot- these schools are part of our society and things happen in societies," she added.
The national school was closed for a week a day after a student was raped in one of the hostels on June 2, 2018.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said samples were taken from males who live within the school or those believed to have been at the school during the time of the rape early Saturday morning to find out the person behind the crime.
