Shabaab attacks paralyze learning activities in Lamu East

Learning institutions in Lamu East Constituency in Lamu County remain closed due to frequent attacks from the Alshabaab Millitants in the area.
The schools in villages of Basuba, Mararani and Mangai were closed for close to three years now citing insecurity as the main reason as to why the teachers and students felt insecure.
Lamu county chief education officer Mohamed Sagara says the move forced the county government of lamu to transfer almost 256 students from the area that are in class three up to class four into a boarding school in Mokowe Arid Zone for them to have access to education.
“We took 256 students from the insecure villages to a boarding school in Mokowe Arid Zone, but we are faced by a huge challenge in terms of funds as we have to facilitate their education and some basic needs”, said Sagara.
This comes after teachers who used to work in the area flew away due to recent frequent attacks from the shabaab militants who have worsened security status of the area.
