Teachers are fleeing Garissa county following a suspected Al Shabaab attack on a school that left three teachers dead.
The attack on Kamuthe Resource Centre in Kamuthe village has instilled fear in the teachers forcing some of them to seek transfer from the region.
Reports indicate that the teachers proceeded to the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) headquarters offices in Garissa County to demand for transfer letters.
A section of the teachers especially those who do not hail from the region expressed their regret in working in the region.
According to the teachers, they had been promised that security will be boosted.
"We are not going. We are here to stay until we are served, we are not going back. We do not need an escort or any other thing. We want a transfer.
(Hatuendi. We are here to stay mpaka tushughulikiwe, we are not going back. Hatutaki escort, hatutaki mambo ingine. Tunataka transfer)," Winfred Kithea, a teacher from the region, stated.
"We had thought Garissa County will be good but (Tulikuwa tumeona kama Garissa county iko mzuri, lakini saa hii) we are regret a lot because the issue of insecurity is high," Kithea added.
The teachers however claimed they were ready to work in a safer environment.
