Christian students ‘attacked with MACHETES for refusing to recite Koran’
STUDENTS have been attacked with machetes when a brawl broke out over Christian pupils refusing to recite sections of the Koran as tensions between the two communities reach boiling point at the school.
By Mark Chandler, The Express, Jan 30, 2018:
Around 35 students were left injured after being stabbed, beaten or hacked with machetes at a school in Nairobi when a brawl started over Christian pupils refusing to recite sections of the Koran, it is claimed.Jamhuri High School in the Kenyan capital had to be closed down for five days after the huge brawl broke out.
Tensions were said to have been high at the 1,400-pupil school for weeks after pupils of both religions claimed they were being discriminated against.
The boarding school came under fire for designating separate bathrooms and sections of the library for the two faiths, Morning Star News reported.
After a number of Muslim students tried to force Christian boys to recite the Koran, an enormous brawl broke out.
Youngsters were attacked with crude weapons including machetes, clubs and rocks as the violence raged.
A witness told the paper: “Some Muslim students forcefully tried to induct Christian students into their Islam faith, and those who refused were knifed, while others were physically beaten.
“The knives and machetes used are alleged to have come from outside the school.”

Kenya is mostly Christian but has a large Islamic population.
Violence between the faiths is rare and the country is seen as being relatively free of religious tensions.
However, it has suffered repeated deadly attacks from Somali Islamist extremists.
And just last week a cathedral in the northern Kenya town of Marsabit was attacked by Muslims following violent demonstrations.
Three people were killed in the fighting, sparked over the arrest of a Muslim teacher.
