Kenya: Principal arrested after fatal attack on school bus

A school official has been arrested in Kenya after one person died and at least a dozen others were injured after a convoy of school buses was attacked by bandits.

Interior Minister Fred Matiang’i said the school headteacher was arrested because the school buses were travelling past the stipulated time, the BBC reports.

School buses are not allowed to operate after 18:00.

The bandits killed one of the drivers and injured several teachers who work at the high school located in Elgeyo Marakwet county, western Kenya.

The students were travelling on Thursday night after a school trip.

Police said an investigation had been launched into the incident.

In August, the Kenyan government imposed a 60-day night curfew on parts of Baringo, West Pokot and Elgeyo Marakwet counties following increased inter-communal violence.
