DCI moves in swiftly as cases of student unrests and strikes increase

Moving forward, any involvement in crime will documented and the same shall reflect in the Certificate of Good Conduct.

A statement released by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations read in part that “let each student be informed that it will automatically be reflected on the Police Clearance Certificate (Certificate of Good Conduct) when such student will apply for one”.

The DCI further warned that any involvement in crime will be a “Permanent Criminal mark that will bar many students from achieving their goals as no employer of worth will dare employ such characters”.

Among the crimes highlighted that could lead to blacklisting include armed and unpeaceable demonstrations, assault of any degree, drunkenness, arson, drug abuse, cyber bullying and any other form of reported crime.

The DCI further urged all the relevant stake holders to intervene accordingly to save the future of learners.

“This is therefore to warn the students and to ask parents, religious leaders and guardians to take note and advise them accordingly” read the statement.

The move comes in the wake of rising numbers of student unrests with several schools closed following student unrests.

Among the schools that have so far been closed include Maranda high School, Kisumu Girls’ school Ambira high school among many others.
