Two male students in Kenya have been laid to rest after they were killed at a girl’s school.

The two students of St Joseph College Layibi were killed last week at Bright Valley School, a girls’ school and were identified as Brian Rubangakene, 19, and Emmanuel Okeny, 17.

While at the burial, Layibi College School administrators and local leaders called upon the government to bring to book those who killed their students.

On a fateful day, 10 students from St Joseph College Layibi escaped from the school premises in the night and went to the neighbouring Bright Valley Girls’ School, where three students were shot by the guards attached to Expose Security group.

It’s not yet clear what the students had gone to do at the neighbouring school at night.

Rubangakene died on the spot, Okeny escaped with injuries, went back to school where he was later found on Thursday morning, he was taken to Gulu Regional Referral Hospital where he breathed his last.

Their colleague Kenneth Rubangakene is still at Hospital receiving treatment, while seven others who had earlier been arrested by police were given police bonds and dismissed from school.

While at the burial, the senior four classroom teacher at St Joseph’s College Layibi, Mr Geoffrey Okot Ojok, tasked the government and other stakeholders to make sure that those who killed the students are brought to the book.

“Why shoot to kill yet there are other body parts like legs that they should have shot rather than killing our children,” he asked.
