Maseno School students attack journalists, demand back suspended principal – PHOTOS

Tension is high at Maseno School after students went on rampage on Tuesday morning to demand for the reinstatement of their interdicted principal Paul Otula.

Mr Otula was interdicted following claims that a Form One student was sodomised by senior students. Homa Bay High School Principal Andrew Bwuop has been posted in Mr Otula’s place.

“Don’t come here without (Education Cabinet Secretary Fred) Matiangi,” they shouted.
