Government transfers Mandera teachers over security concerns

The  Teachers Service Commissioner (TSC) has transferred teachers working along the common border with Somalia.

The  move follows the Sunday morning attack by Al Shabaab militants in a remote village neighbouring Somalia.

Heavily  armed militants injured two national police reservists and snatched their gains before stealing food stuffs from a  warehouse in Hareri Hosle in Mandera East Sub County.

The  TSC  Director, Yusuf  Abdullahi  who spoke to the press in Mandera  town said teachers were transferred from Sarohindi  and  Libahiya primary schools on security reasons.

He  said the area has no police or AP camp but only two national police reservists manning the vast region.

“We cannot compromise the security of our teachers, but this is a temporary measure and once we are convinced there is  enough security we will repost the tutors to their original schools, ” said Abdullahi.

In  2014 over 28 teachers traveling for December holidays were killed in Arabia in Mandera East by the Shabaab militants  prompting mass exodus of their colleagues to schools in other counties.
