Sex for grades

Nairobi - A recent study, Performance Needs Assessment of the Kenya Health Training System 2011 reveals that lecturers in medical training colleges are demanding sex in exchange for favourable examination marks, the Daily Nation reports.
The report released on Wednesday indicated that there are sex engineered grades whereby a male lecturer will require a student to perform sexual favours before being awarded certain grades. Participants reported that some instructors requested female students to give in before they are assisted in their work and if the student did not comply, she should be given a failing grade.
Speaking during the launch of the study, the permanent secretary Public Health and Sanitation Mark Bor, said that the report called for development of policies and programs to protect students from sexual harassment, enforcing existing codes of conduct including sacking of tutors who harass students and creation of “safe space” for students to anonymously report the vice without fear or reprisal.
