Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) has directed its members( in the now  insecurity-prone Laikipia West  near the famous Baringo boarder ) to withdraw their services until the government assures their safety.

Ndung’u Wangenye (Laikipia County Kuppet Executive Secretary)  instructed the 60 teachers to leave the schools,This is will paralyse learning activities in this region.

He said security had deteriorated in the area and accused police of doing little as armed bandits continue to terrorise residents.

On Thursday morning there were demonstrations  at Rubere,  Mahwa, Rukore,Matuiku, Milimani and Mihuri secondary schools after parents withdrew their children and demanded better security at the schools.

The tension is that:

Mr Wangenye said special forces deployed to drive out illegal herders and the armed bandits has not helped as incidents of cattle rustling had resumed.

“Bandits have destabilised all social and economic activities in Laikipia. I have instructed teachers in the county where there are security concerns to boycott work effective today,” Mr Wangenye said.

He said a 19-year-old woman was attacked and raped on Wednesday night by the suspected bandits, who fired in the air to scare residents.
