Five schools within Boni Forest which were closed in 2014 due to insecurity have been reopened.

The five primary schools in terror-prone Basuba Ward in Lamu County have finally been reopened, six years after they were deserted.

They include Milimani, Basuba, Mangai, Mararani and Kiangwe, all of which are inside the dense Boni Forest where a multi-agency security operation to flush out Al-Shabaab militants is ongoing.

The five schools were closed in 2014 due to the insecurity brought about by the terrorists.

10 TEACHERS

On Wednesday, the county security committee led by Lamu County Commissioner Irungu Macharia and County Police Commander Muchangi Kioi accompanied the 10 teachers posted to the area in a ceremony to reopen the five institutions in the respective villages around Boni Forest.

Two teachers were posted to each school as the institutions will be offering learning starting from early childhood development education (ECDE) up to Grade Four.
