The incident happened just two days after property worth millions of shillings was on Monday destroyed when fire razed down one of the dormitories in Kiserian Secondary school, Kajiado County.
Similar waves have been experienced in the past where students have been accused of burning down their dormitories because of National exam fevers.
Authorities believe unprepared students were burning schools in a bid to halt the upcoming Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examinations.
Despite this, Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has promised that all measures have been put in place to ensure there are no cheating cases in the upcoming national exams.
