School heads warned

15 April 2013, 17:16 Mwangi Karanja

Trans Nzoia county director of education Joseph Wamonyo has warned school heads against conspiring with sexual crime perpetrators who impregnate school girls.

Speaking on Sunday in Kitale, Wamocho said that many cases of early pregnancy have for a long period of time gone unreported as parents and teachers resolve to settle the issue in kangaroo courts.

He says school heads have been compromised and are not forwarding information that would lead to arrest of culprits who go unpunished.

“We want to caution school heads and parents who accept bribes from men who intentionally impregnate young girls thus ruining their prospects that if caught they risk penalties and prosecution,” said Wamocho.

He added that cases of pregnancies among school girls is interfering with their efforts of educating the girl child.

He reiterated that many lives have been lost as majority of girls hunt for unhealthy and unprofessional means of terminating pregnancies.

Wamocho revealed that day schools have been affected immensely by the threat.

He alleged that boda boda operators are offering free rides to girls for sexual favor.

“There are reports that boda boda operators are being involved in sexual relationships with under age girls and we urge parents to take responsibility of giving guidance and also for the girls to take care of their bodies because they risk contracting sexual transmitted diseases and getting themselves in early parenthood,” he posed.

He added, “Teachers should stop sending students home between classes because we have modern ways of communicating to parents via the use of mobile phones. This habit has allowed majority of them to idle around as they are under nobody’s watch.”

He further cautioned farmers against employing under age children in their farms during this planting season.
