School head Joash Barasa said the stolen devices were part of the 59 tablets given to the school by the national Government and were yet to be used.

"We had planned to start the digital programme and some teachers had already been trained on how to use the digital devices," he told a local daily.

Ogulu said police Police have already launched an investigation on the theft and are currently following on crucial leads.
