Residents in Wajir County are demanding that the government fast track the recruitment of graduate teachers and form four leavers from the area and deploy them in schools before the second academic term resumes.
The residents expressed fears that failure by the county government to take charge of the situation will lead to prolonged crisis.
Early last month two non local teachers were killed at Qarsa in Wajir County leading to a boycott of services by their colleagues.
The aftermath was the transfer of 900 non local teachers by their employer the Teacher Service Commission leaving 250 public primary and secondary schools closed
Learning remains paralyzed in the area amid fears that the schools might not re-open for the second term if no urgent resolution is found.
Local leaders also want swift action for normalcy to return to the area
