MORE than 200 students of Yambyu Secondary School in Mwingi district have been sent home following unrest yesterday. The girls had walked out of school on Monday night, protesting what they termed as frequent attacks by ghosts.
Mwingi deputy county commissioner Joseph Sawe said the police had a difficult time trying to look for 105 of the girls. He said only 26 students remained in the school during the walkout. The students left the school at 2am to see Sawe who they believed would address their problems. "I cannot believe girls can walk on their own at night," said Sawe. He said the students complained of ghosts disturbing them every night and they hardly sleep.
"We have ensured that the others who did not make it to the DC's office are safe with their parents," said Sawe.
