Govt should reconstruct torched schools

17 April 2013, 13:01 Alloys Musyoka

The government has been asked to start reconstructing several primary and secondary schools which were torched during the 2012 tribal skirmishes in Tana River County.

According to education officers in the region, the schools did not open last term even after calm returned in the area.

Tana River county Director of Education Mohamed Shee said some of the schools need to be reconstructed if at all pupils are to use the structures for learning activities in second term.

He said the 13 schools among them one secondary school could not be opened last term because their structures were in deplorable conditions.

Shee said roofs, windows and doors in most schools were removed by unknown people during the tribal skirmishes in Tana Delta district.

“Many of the schools do not have rooves and doors. Some of them were broken into and some equipments stolen from the offices making it impossible for teachers and pupils to resume learning activities,” said Shee.

He said failure by the government to reconstruct the schools in Tana Delta district will mean many children will not have access to education which is against the constitution.

The education officer called on well wishers to assist the government in constructing the educational structures to enable children to go to school next term like other children across the country.
