School lost seven teachers in Mandera massacre

A school lost seven teachers in the Saturday morning bus attack by suspected Al-Shabaab militia.


They taught at Dawa Primary School, according to Township Ward Rep Feysal Abdinoor.

Local leaders said Mandera Town experienced the biggest loss as most of those killed were teachers, medics and security officers whose absence will be greatly felt.

Mr Abdinoor condemned the attack saying it was meant to create conflict between Muslims and other religions.

On Saturday, Al-Shabaab hijacked a Nairobi-bound bus and executed 28 people in a chilling dawn attack at Arabiya in Mandera near the Kenya-Somali border.

The Kenya National Union of Teachers on Sunday instructed their members who are not residents but based in Mandera, Moyale, Marsabit, Turkana, and other unsafe areas to relocate to their home counties over rising insecurity.

Knut Secretary-General Wilson Sossion instructed the teachers to register at their respective Teachers Service Commission home branches and await fresh deployment.
