Drama into this year’s national exams seem not to have ended!! The exams which have recorded the highest number of pregnancies and birth rates is now taking a new face in the dramas witnessed. Did this teacher want to impregnate his candidate during the ongoing exams?
The principal of a school in Makueni county has been charged with indecently touching a KCSE candidate.
Muumani Secondary School principal Francis Mulwa appeared before senior resident magistrate Martin Mutegi in Tawa law court and denied the charge.
He is accused of touching the girl’s breasts and bottom last Thursday. Really? What was he after? We can maybe describe him well as a “woman eater” the same way Justice James Wakiaga described one of the accused in a murder case he is currently running.
Mulwa was released on a Sh250,000 bond with a surety of a similar amount or a Sh100,000 bail.
The case will be mentioned on December 6 and the hearing will be on February 15 next year.
Sexual harassment claims also emerged in July after 110 girls at Silanga Secondary School in Ol Kalou fled while screaming.
Principal Peter Macharia however denied the allegation, terming it malicious.
The students, who are boarders, left at about 4am when morning studies begin. A teacher who did not want to be named said he and the matron noticed something was amiss when they went to the dormitory to ensure all students were up for studies.
The mixed day and boarding school, located along the Ol Kalou-Nakuru road, has 280 students. There are 80 boys and 200 girls, 110 of whom are boarders.
The cases of sexual harassment among students have been on the rise, raising eyebrows from different government bodies and Kenyans at large.
The government is currently strict on the issue following the high number of pregnancies witnessed during this year’s KCPE and KCSE exams.
Do you think chances of teachers’ involvement in these cases are there or they are just being accused wrongly?
