Kenya: Schools have final say on uniform, Supreme Court rules

The Supreme Court has overturned a Court of Appeal ruling allowing Muslim students to wear hijabs in school.

In a triumph for the Methodist Church of Kenya, the court in a majority decision on Thursday said the ruling by the Appellate court was against the school uniform policy.

The judges ruled that every school has a right to determine its rules.

The church, which sponsors St. Paul’s Kiwanjani Secondary School in Isiolo, appealed against the Court of Appeal decision.

A parent had complained about the suspension but the High Court sided with the school.
