What Union has Told Teachers in Ol Moran to do as Schools Reopen Today Despite Tension in the Area

The Laikipia County Governor Ndiritu Mureithi has now urged parents in war-ravaged Ol Moran to release their kids to return to schools which are expected to resume today. 

Governor Ndiritu Muriithi together with the Laikipia West Sub-county Education Director Ms Josephine Thuranira assured the residents of Ol Moran that their children will be safe as security officers will be escorting their children together with their teachers to class. The security team will also be guarding the schools throughout and later escort them back to their homes in the evening.

Yesterday, Governor Ndiritu Muriithi told the congregation at Ol Moran Catholic Church that everything is set for the resumption of learning as dozens of security officers have been deployed to guard the area and curb any form of invasion by the bandits. The governor also assured that security officers will take cover in the schools to ensure smooth learning. 

The chair of Kenya National Union of Teachers based in Laikipia County Mr Francis Itegi also spoke and has urged all teachers in the area to go back to school. 

However, tension has not yet subsided as some of the residents reveal that several bandits were spotted in the area near Dam Samaki on Saturday.

Some of the schools which were closed in Ol Moran include Survey primary school, Survey secondary school, Mirango primary school, Ndunyu Loi primary school, Magadi primary and Mirigwiti primary school. These schools are expected to resume learning today despite the deserted Ol Moran areas where residents are yet to return to their homes.
