Insecurity halts schools re-opening in Moyale

07 January 2014, 08:15

Moyale - Security fears have forced students and pupils in Moyale to stay home even as schools re-open for the first term of the school calendar.

According to Moyale District Officer, Galm Golicha, most schools failed to re-open on Monday, and that the few that had re-opened had recorded a low turnout, The Standard reports.

He attributed the delay to the ongoing fighting among the communities living in the area, saying that parents were deeply concerned with the security of their children and therefore were not willing to let them go to school.

In December last year, more than 32,000 people were displaced in the area following inter-communal clashes over control of natural resources and local politics.

The Kenya Red Cross Society (KRCS) said thousands of people from Moyale fled into Ethiopia following inter-clan clashes that left several people killed, others injured and vehicles burnt.
