Mombasa - Students of Bamburi Secondary School protested Monday following a burglary incident at their school that saw 41 laptops stolen on Sunday night.

“These thugs have stolen the gadgets we were using to conduct our studies. At the moment we do not have any computers left... they are all gone,” said Aisha Zema, a Form Two student.
The school chairman said since 2003, the school has been a target of burglary but police investigations have never been able solve the problem.
“In 20003, we lost 1 computer and a duplicating machine. In 2007, we lost 12 computers. In 2009, we lost 64 chairs and in 2012 we lost sufurias for the feeding program. We request the government to launch an investigation and this time round arrest the culprits,” said the school chairman.
Kisauni OCPD, Julia Wanjohi said they have launched an investigation into the matter and are now trailing two night guards employed at the school and who went missing after the incident.
“You should remain calm as we conduct investigations into the matter. We are also looking for the two Maasai night guards who were on duty during the incident.
