Shock as 8 schoolgirls found pregnant

16 October 2014, 16:45 Ben Wafula

Bungoma - Parents and teachers of Tunya Primary School in Bungoma County have been shocked by the news that eight girls have been found pregnant.

According to the school head, Clement Wafula, three of the girls are candidates who are expected to sit for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) in November.

Wafula stated that no girl has been sent home and the school administration has allowed them to sit for their exams while the others are continuing with their studies.

"All the girls are continuing with their studies and none has been sent away. The school administration has also allowed the candidates to sit for their KCPE," said Wafula.

In a rare twist of events, one of the boys who impregnated the girls, has opted to drop out of school to fend for his young family.

The boy, also a KCPE candidate, is said to have dropped out and to take care of the girl supported by his parents. He is said to have secured a job at a nearby hotel where he is working as a cook.

Area assistant chief, Kizito Wanyonyi, decried the alarming rate of pregnant school girls in the area asking authorities to clamp down on the culprits in order to curb down on such vices.

Kizito said in 2013, 13 girls were impregnated from the same school yet no one was arrested in connection to the same vice saying that if left unattended it could be a major problem.

He called on the parents to report such matter to the administration for proper action to be taken instead of settling the matter at home which, he cited, was the cause of the increase in the underage pregnancies.

The incident comes barely two weeks after five girls were found pregnant from Yalusi Secondary school in Webuye, two of them were form four candidates.
