Starvation in Basuba Ward of Lamu East has forced the closure of five schools.
Milimani, Mangai, Mararani and Basuba primary schools were closed two months ago while Bar’goni Primary School was shut due to low turnout by pupils.
Mararani Primary School headmaster Michael Njoroge said many students dropped out to join their parents in search of food.
Mr Njoroge called on the government to introduce school feeding programme in all the schools of the region for learning to resume.
