Ngara Girls’ School in Nairobi given 24-Hour ultimatum to close

The Ultimatum has been issued by a host of MPs.

They have also given the school a 24-hour ultimatum to avail more information about the missing girl.

The new demand comes hours after a family in Nairobi expressed worries of the missing form one student, who disappeared last week on Wednesday, two days after she returned back after half term break.

Earlier, a family member who spoke to the press, said that Saadia, who had gone home on Friday, June 15 was escorted to school by her elder sister, Halima Adan on Monday, June 25 at around 2pm. The sister confirmed that she actually dropped Saadia in school.

"I dropped Saadia inside the school and left as she was she being checked in together with other students,” said Halima.

School statement

Later, the same week on Wednesday evening the family was informed by the school that the student had gone missing, and that she was not in the school compound.

In its statement, the school management said that Saadia was last seen on June 27 at around 5:30pm. The family has since disputed this claim from the school.

The school principal alleged that the student escaped from school through an opening on the fence near a playground, but CCTV footages availed to the guardian, Mr Ahmed Abdulahi, didn’t show any footage. No efforts have been made by the school, nearly a week later despite booking the matter at Pangani Police Station.
