A number of schools in clash-hit areas of Nessuit and Mauche in Njoro, Nakuru County, have re-opened as calm slowly returns to the region. This comes after the government deployed nearly 400 police officers to calm tension and avert clashes in the area.
A spot check on Tuesday revealed that most of the schools had re-opened, but a few learners reported. At Nessuit Secondary School only 26 students reported out of 194 learners, with most classrooms remaining deserted. In its primary wing, only 94 out of 817 pupils turned up. However, all the teachers in the school were present. The Nation learnt that some learners were still reluctant to report back to school for fear of fresh attacks.
