Five students from St. Mary’s Karumandi Boys High School in Kirinyaga County have been charged with destruction of property worth Ksh6 million.
The court found the five involved in the burning of one of their school’s dormitory on February 2021 thus leaving over 30 metallic beds and students properties destroyed.
Among destroyed items are students’ personal items valued at Ksh4 million and metallic beds worth over Ksh2 million.

According to the Investigation Officer, Dennis Sailel, told the court that four students will testify against the five students.
Additionally, the case will be heard on February 9, 2021 as they wait for the final ruling while investigations continue.
