Pregnant school girls should continue with education, officer urges

03 May 2016, 15:45 Zainabu Juma

Nairobi - Kajiado Central Children Officer (CCO), John Mwangi has called on head teachers and parents to allow girls who get pregnant while in school to continue with their education after they deliver.

Mwangi  who  was  speaking in his office said school girl pregnancies in Kajiado has been on the rise in the recent past with more than ten cases reported monthly and most of the girls affected drop out of school.

He urged parents and guardians to support the girls to continue with their education after they deliver by helping them take care of their babies while they go back to school.

Mwangi urged them to report the men responsible for impregnating their daughters.

“The law is very clear on engaging in sexual activities with a minor and the only way to stop school girl pregnancies is by reporting the culprits,” he said.

He also called on parents and guardians to advise their children on matters regarding their sexuality and morality.

He further said that Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) which is common in the area has contributed to the high number of school-girl pregnancies as the girls engage in sexual activities after undergoing the cut.

“Most under-age girls, after being circumcised, view themselves as women and no longer girls, and engage in sexual activities while still in school resulting in pregnancies and early marriages”,  he regretted.

He regretted that despite FGM being declared illegal and criminal in Kenya, it is still rampant in Kajiado County and is now done in secrecy by perpetrators to evade the law.
