The government is in the midst of a frantic search of nine high school girls who went missing from a boarding school under mysterious circumstances.
A report by NTV on Monday, August 9, indicated that the girls disappeared from Kisaju Dipak Boarding School located in Isinya, Kajiado County.
It is still not clear how the students vanished, where they went or how long they have been missing since they reported into the school for the 2021 first term.
A parent to one of the girls was the first to sound an alarm after her daughter called her to inform her that she was not at school before hanging up abruptly.A building inside Kisaju Dipak Secondary School in Kajiado County.K24 Digital
When she reported the incident at school, an assembly was called and that was when they discovered that a total of nine students had been missing all along.
"These children do not have enough security, they left in unclear circumstances and have not been found till now. We need to be told where the children are," lamented Florence David, one of the parents.
While demanding an explanation from the school principal, another parent lifted the lid on the deplorable state of security in the school.
She noted that at most times, the school lacks a security guard at night and the matron is almost always missing.
"There is no security for the students. At night, there is usually no watchman. Sometimes, the children are made to slash at night, between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m.," stated another parent.
The Education Officer in charge of Isinya confirmed their disappearance noting that the state was looking into the matter.
A board member identified as Davine Naserian told the press that she was perturbed by the vanishing because the board had not been informed about any problems at the institution.
The disappearance comes at a time when abductions are at an all time high with most cases involving children in Nairobi and Mombasa.
In the month of July alone, at least three serial killers behind the deaths of children were arrested including Evans Wafula and Masten Wanjala.
Wafula reportedly lured the minors aged between 10 and 15 from different locations within Moi’s Bridge in Uasin-Gishu county where he defiled and killed them.
Wanjala, on the other hand, claimed he carried up to 10 murders with the help of another individual.DCI arrested suspected serial killer Evans Wafula on July 17, 2021abduction death murder arrest killed suspect
