An arsonist struck last Saturday and Sunday nights and torched dormitories at the mixed boarding and day school. On Monday, someone attacked pupils in their dormitory armed with an arrow.
School administrators said the attacker aimed the arrow at one of the pupils but he ducked and escaped unhurt.
Parents with children at the school have now resorted to performing Pokot rituals next week to help the authorities catch the criminals.
“Our elders will perform rituals and we believe the person will just surrender or run mad,” Ms Metrine Chemala told Nation.Africa.
“We won’t relent on looking for the suspect because our children are learning in fear and are traumatised. We won’t allow him to continue causing more harm.”
In the first fire incident, an electrical fault was suspected but when another fire broke out in another dormitory the next day, the school community decided to investigate further.
Ms Chemala said a match box was found in one dormitory and school managers believed the arsonist had used it to light the fire
The suspects are still at large and the school has asked the police to beef up security as investigations continue.
“We want whoever has an ill motive against our pupils that we will pursue them by all means,” said deputy head teacher Dickson Mulei.
He said they will conduct rituals to identify the suspects.
Mr Mulei said the community around the school helped put out both fires, although the two dormitories were gutted.
The attackers targeted girls’ dormitories, he said. “We are traumatised and we are urging police to provide maximum security to the school.
