Doldol Boys' Secondary School students were yesterday home after they went on strike on Monday.
Laikipia North district education officer Nebert Adika said the 400 students were complaining of poor diet among other grievances.
"They complained that the food they that had been served for supper was not fully cooked. But that cannot be the real reason because even the form four students ate the same food," said Adika.
He said the board of governors had decided to send the form one to three students after damaging school property including window panes and solar panels.
Adika said the school administration was taking stock of the destroyed property, adding that the suspended students will be informed on when to report back.
Yesterday, the held an emergency meeting where they agreed to send students from forms one to three home, save for the form fours who are beginning their examination tomorrow. Reliable sources informed The Star that the students have complained for long over the quality of food, whereby they have been accusing the school principal and the matron of high handedness. On Monday night, the students were heard screaming with high tones whereby they fled into the forest after security officers were called in. . Ends.
