Kenyan pupils protest against school demolition

2014bb06-8bfd-4694-b0aa-dc98f4e186ac

Schoolchildren have blocked a major road with their desks in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, to protest against demolition of their school, privately-owned Capital FM reports:

The pupils are from Kenyatta Golf Course Academy, the report says.

The circumstances leading up to the protest have not been reported.

The demolition of public school property is not uncommon in Kenya because corrupt officials have been known to give out several title deeds for the same property.

Two years ago police fired teargas to disperse protesting schoolchildren in the capital after their school’s playground was reportedly claimed by a nearby hotel.

Activists who took part in that protest later formed Shule Yangu Alliance, an initiative to ensure public schools have title deeds for their lands.
