Some of the six students who have been confirmed pregnant are KCPE candidates who will take their exams next month. Parents want the instructor arrested and prosecuted, according to a report from a journalist who visited the school on Sunday. Gender activists have subsequently spoken out, urging the government to conduct a thorough and thorough investigation into the situation.

” The teacher called me to the office and spent time with me repeatedly. I am now six months pregnant” One pupil said.“We are so disappointed, we had high hopes on the teacher but he has turned out to be a beast. On the other hand, the ministry officials who were informed more than one month ago are not helping.The incident has not started today, so it started as soon as the teacher was posted to the school”.

Residents are aware of attempts by some parents and school officials in Ogembo and Kenyenya to have the subject silenced so that the teacher who is nearing retirement can be paid his pension, according to activist Cyrus. “We cannot remain silent as the predator destroys our children’s livelihoods; justice must be served,” the campaigner told the Star.
