Police in Keiyo South are investigating a case involving the abandonment of 500 boxes of government textbooks intended for a Junior Secondary School in Nyamira North and Nyamira South, Nyamira County. The textbooks were discovered along the Kaptagat-Kaptarakwa Marum Road inside Kaptagat Forest on January 20, 2024.

Preliminary findings suggest a potential hijacking scenario, where perpetrators seized control of the vehicle transporting the textbooks. The hijackers allegedly unloaded the educational materials along the roadside and fled with the vehicle. Nyamira and Elgeyo Marakwet, where the textbooks were intended, are almost 300 kilometers apart.

Authorities are actively pursuing leads to unravel the motives behind this unusual incident, expressing concerns about the safety and security of educational resources in the region. The missing vehicle that transported the materials is yet to be located, and efforts to trace it are ongoing.
