Laikipia police are investigating a suspected arsonist attack of Wathituga Secondary School principal’s office.
“Three female students were attending to their agriculture project when they saw fire billowing from the office and raised the alarm,” County Commissioner Onesimus Musyoki said on Monday.
Mr Musyoki said principal Wambugu Ngatia informed them that the fire started at about 5pm, after masons working at the school left. He said members of the public helped put it out.
The fire is reported to have led to the loss of property worth Sh 500,000.
County Criminal Investigations Officer, Muinde Mwau, said they were looking for a hooded person spotted leaving the school after the incident.
