Kisumu County Director of Education Sabina Aroni ordered the school closure on Monday, saying the students had become rowdy.

"From what we gathered the girls' complaints touched on entertainment and freedom of worship," Ms Aroni said.

The students vandalised the school dining hall and a computer laboratory during the Sunday night strike.
