Students Of Meru Polytechnic Living In Fear Of Elephant Attacks

Meru National Polytechnic students are living in fear of being attacked by elephants that have been roaming near the school and terrorizing residents of the neighbouring Kambakia village.

Students would not freely move around the school and the neighbou hood for fear of being attacked thereby affecting learning.

According to county review, they observed that there was no fence behind the institutions’ premises and one would easily get into the adjacent Gitoro forest, the animals’ wildlife.

“In most cases, students prefer staying in their rooms as the stray animals can invade any time,’ Madevu told media.

He faulted Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) for not fencing the area to contain the animals in the wildlife despite numerous calls to do so.

The students have threatened to demonstrate should KWS fail to fence the area.

Chairman of Community Forest Association Caleb Mutethia Kibuko said farmers from the nearby village had incurred huge losses following rampant cases of elephants invading their farms. Kibuko claimed that the animals have been using the path used by student to school when invading the village. Some wildlife officers demolished a fence that had previously been erected at the area giving elephants’ entry into the village, Kibuko claimed.
