Entire 258 Makueni Boys High School candidates were on Saturday morning suspended for two weeks following a night of rioting at the institution.

According to reports, the candidates went on rampage on Friday night protesting the compulsory, monthly haircuts by the school. 

According to the school Principal Mr. Raphael Katana, students-some who were keeping a full beard and head full of hair- refused to get their haircuts as required.

Mr. Katana told the media that the students were sent away to pave way for investigations.
