The entire Form Four class at Makueni Boys High School have been suspended for reportedly refusing to shave their beards.
According to reports, the students went on a riot on Friday evening, February 19 after an order instructing them to trim their beards and shaving their heads was issued.
The news was not received well by the candidates who even stoned the principal who was issuing the order.
The principal, Raphael Katana was rushed to Makueni Hospital where he was treated and discharged in Saturday morning, February 20.
He said the students were growing full beards and keeping a head full of hair which was against school policy.
He added that the monthly shave has been done since the school was started in 1966.
“We shave our students every month, all the students in other classes got their haircuts, but the Form Fours refused, as per the Ministry of Education guidelines, we sent all of them home because they became rowdy,” said Katana.
Confirming the incident, Makueni County Police Commander Joseph Ole Napeiyan said police arrived at the school and restored peace.
