Mbeere students burn dorms to 'expel ghosts'
Students of a secondary school in Mbeere South subcounty on Wednesday burnt two dormitories allegedly to exorcise ghosts.
They torched a boys’ and a girls’ dormitory in Gikiiro Mixed Secondary School at 8pm.
Some students and neighbours told the media two girls early this month “were possessed by ghosts”.
They said one student collapsed and another said she would suck blood from the others.
The school administration invited clerics for prayers after the students’ complaints.
The school on Wednesday had told the students not to fear as they were not in danger.
