The Chief of Defense Forces, Robert Kibochi, says schools in Laikipia will soon re-open despite recent attacks that have rendered the area insecure.
Kibochi said the government is also looking at renovating the affected schools. He spoke when he led security chiefs through various parts of the conservancy and surrounding areas to assess the security situation.
He also visited troops involved in a multi-agency security operation in Laikipia.
Inspector-General of Police Hillary Mutyambai promised additional air assets to boost the operation that has seen relative calm return to the region.
Interior CS Fred Matiangi said they are determined to solve the recurrent crisis once and for all urging the local leadership to support the operations.
