School closes over rampant sex abuse by principal

22 March 2013, 18:46 Philip Kithome

Eburu secondary school in Naivasha County has been slapped with a penalty of an abrupt closure from the Ministry of Education following allegations of rampant sexual abuse of the students by the headteacher, which contradicts the teachers Acts.

This heinous act resurfaced after the students from the school went on a strike protesting an interdiction of one of the teachers for reasons not disclosed.

The parent’s representatives Karanja reported that the parents had convened to address the strike issue when the sensitive issue of sexual abuse by the principal cropped up.

“It was a hard time for most us to come to terms with what we were hearing from our children, At first, the head teacher has been sexually abusing them in incognito though some of the teachers knew but could not dare report,” Karanja remarked.  

The students who requested not to be named added that the headteacher had been doing this to all the students, only sparing those in their final year.

Having confirmed this from a number of victims, the parents were prompted to contact the Nakuru County Education Director Mathew Aboka leading to the immediate closure.

The principal has been apprehended awaiting to be arraigned in court upon the completion of preliminary investigations.
