KNUT opposes provision of condoms to students
14 June 2012, 13:44
Bungoma South KNUT executive secretary, Mr. Kenneth Ngangah today objected to the government’s proposal to provide students with condoms as a solution to curb the increased spread of HIV/AIDS among youths.
Mr. Ngangah said provision of condoms to students transpires parents’ and government’s failure to their responsibility of advocating morality among youths.
“The provision of condoms to students will lead to increased immorality and a decline in academic work. The government should instead use that money to buy pads for needy girls and provide sexual education to students,” Mr. Ngangah said.
He further said that the government should not delay in employing the 10,000 teachers before July as promised to evade the planned teachers’ strike.
As far as Kenya’s Vision 2030 is concerned, Mr. Ngangah said that it would only be achieved if the citizens are well-educated and not politicking on important matters like implementing the constitution.
