Today 5 more schools have closed due to insecurity and pressure from cattle rustlers in the area. According to mochongoi, more schools are on verge of closing as tension continues to rise high. According to him, the rustlers have been encroaching and grazing the cattle in the area.
The area MCA Kipruto Kimosop also reported that security agencies in the area are not doing their work well as they are not quick to respond in the area and combat the cattle rustlers.
Kenya national Union of Teachers KNUT has requested the government to induce security in the area for a conducive learning environment since if the rustling continues more pupils and students will not go to school for fears of being attacked or killed by the bandits.
The government should take charge and finish these cases in the area by putting proper measures of maximum security in the area.
