Demolishing kiosks along Moi Girls perimeter wall is not the solution.A shameless leadership using Kibra residents as a cover up.

Each and every girl has a right to a safe environment, be it in schools or community, whether their washrooms are close to the dormitories or not! Students' safety is important no matter what.! there was a security lapse at Moi Girls and I wanna see pple go to Jail!

Even Moi Girls' rape issue continues to show us that our police are really pathetic when it comes to handling matters that have a psychological impact on individuals. Parents visit the school to come and comfort their children only to find gun-wielding policemen at the gate.
