Cases of student unrest in schools continue to increase with two schools in Kisii County being the latest to face fire incidents.
Two dormitories were Tuesday night razed down at Amabuko Mixed Day Secondary School and Nyabigena Boys High School in separate incidents that happened concurrently at around 8pm.
Police confirmed that at Amabuko Secondary School located in Nyaribari Masaba Constituency, fire razed down a dormitory housing 70 students destroying property of unknown value.
At the same time, a similar incident was witnessed in Nyabigena Boys High School located in South Mugirango Constituency, where more than 140 students were affected after a dormitory burnt down.
Police officers who visited the scene warned that whoever is found culpable in the two cases will face legal action.
The two cases, whose motive remain unclear, come at a time when the country is experiencing unrest in schools with more than seven institutions being affected in the recent past.
Still on Tuesday, students at Chavakali Boys Secondary School in Vihiga County went on a rampage, vandalising the administration block and several school vehicles.
The school has since been closed indefinitely.
This comes even as the government on Tuesday resolved to issue dates for mid-term breaks to ostensibly contain the wave of unrest being witnessed in schools.
