The school was closed last Wednesday following riots by the students after they disagreed with their management over upkeep allowances and school fees.
The move by the students attracted a backlash from the public, who argued that there was no point in disturbing the flow of traffic and stoning motor vehicles on issues that can be amicably resolved.
Speaking to Capital FM, some of the students pointed out that the government, through the education ministry has shown total disregard of their welfare by failing to disburse the allowances on time.
