The Standard Eight classroom is now the man’s bedroom while the Standard Seven one belongs to his first wife.
The man’s second wife sleeps in the Standard Six classroom while his first-born child has taken up Standard Five.
Speaking before the Senate, CS Kithure Kindiki said bandit attacks have left 21 schools closed.
The government has managed to open 14 schools however seven remain closed including the one seized by the bandit.
CS Kindiki told the senators that part of the elaborate security plans by the government will see the region populated with enough security personnel, who will not leave the six affected counties until all bandits are cleared and the region is safe.
Two weeks ago, the CS declared six counties in the North Rift as ‘disturbed and dangerous’ following a wave of banditry attacks that left several people, including security officers, dead.
