Nairobi - A group of six female students at a day mixed secondary school in Samburu Central have dropped out of school after they were allegedly impregnated by Anti-Stock Theft Police officers working in the area.
Residents have urged government to take action on the security officers, failure to which they will hold major demonstrations to agitate for their removal.
Area education officer, Abdisalim Mohammed confirmed the incident, saying the sub-county security committee met recently over the matter and resolved that the officers involved be disciplined.
The Anti-Stock Theft Police Camp where the suspects are stationed is located a Kilometre from the school.
The residents feared that many more girls from the school will be impregnated if no disciplinary action is taken against the implicated officers and called on area Governor to intervene.
