Kenyan schools closed after terror attacks reopen

Three schools in Kenya that have been closed for the past three years due to Al-Shabaab terror attacks have reopened.

The Basuba, Milimani, Mangai, Mararani and Kiangwe primary schools closed in June 2014 and the teachers fled from the area, leaving more than 400 pupils without education.

Despite recruitment problems to recruit teachers to an area with a reputation for terror attacks, ten staff are now in place which means that students can once again go to school.

Mr Mohamed Loo, who has been recruited as the head teacher at Mangai Primary School, said: “We have seen many of our colleagues refusing to be posted to Basuba. As for us, we are ready and determined to work in Basuba. We thank the government for the opportunity. We know things will be better soon.”
