Irresponsible sexual behavior among students affects education in Changamwe

05 October 2016, 20:34 Gabriel Ngalla

Nairobi - Irresponsible sexual behavior and a tendency of most of students evading classes within Changamwe Sub-County in Mombasa has resulted into dwindling of education in the area.

Changamwe Deputy Commissioner Benjamin Njoroge revealed that most of students in the area do not attend classes and some opt to leave their homes in the morning on their school uniforms but they later change them and go to entertainment joints or even camp at Mama ngina gardens in Likoni for a whole day and later return to their homes in the evening.

Njoronge said that he has received complaints from teachers who despite asking parents of such students most of them in high schools to report to the school and explain the where about of their children, most parents do not heed such efforts by the teachers.

“The trend is very worrying and it is the main cause of poor performance in national examinations as well us falling of education levels in Changamwe” he added.

Njoroge said that the Sub County administration will carry out an intensive investigation concerns the whole issue and ensure that the youths and their parents are punished.

“We even doubt that these students are involved in sex parties or commercial sex activities, we will deal with them” Noted Njoroge.

The Changamwe County administration raised concerns that the situation if not contained early it will results into very many social problems including spread of HIV and AIDS, insecurity among very many social vices in the society.

Njoronge said on Wednesday that he has already launched community forums at least every week in the area to address the issue and he challenged parents in Changamwe to closely monitor their children activities while at home and at school all the time
