Kabianga High School has recalled 17 students who had been suspended for skipping an exam for church.
Kericho County Education Director Zachary Mutwiri said the students who are Seventh Day Adventists were recalled after an amicable solution was reached with their parents.
The Atheists in Kenya Society had written a demand letter to the school principal Dr. Joash Oloo asking the school administration to recall the students back within 7 days.
We have learnt that some 17 students of Kabianga High School have been suspended by their Principal Dr. Oloo for not sitting for exams on Saturday, Sabbath Day. We demand that their suspension be revoked.
