Five girls risk life imprisonment for burning dormitories


Five high school students are staring at life jail terms should the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) bring arson charges against them.

On Tuesday, November 30, the National Police Service stated that the five students from  Masaani Girls’ Secondary School were arrested by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in connection with a  fire incident at the school.

Detectives in Machakos county arrested the five students after a fire incident which brought down a dormitory at the school on November 5, 2021. 

The five were arrested following investigations by DCI Machakos and police suspect they were involved in setting ablaze a dormitory at the institution.

“They will be charged in court for Arson and related offences. It is worth noting that contrary to some myths and believes, being a student does not absolve one from criminal responsibility.”

“Arson is a serious offence and is punishable by life imprisonment. We ask parents and teachers to continuously remind students of the wages of every act of criminality,” the statement read in part.

On November 8, Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha threatened that students linked to fire incidents will be blocked from joining public universities.
