At least 10 lecturers at Embu University are under investigations for having sex with their students in exchange for good grades. The explosive revelations were made by the University’s Vice Chancellor Prof. Daniel Mugendi confirming that sex for good grades scandals has hit the institution with ten suspects so far and who are scheduled to appear before Embu University’s disciplinary committee.
Some suspects even coerced the students they had impregnated into procuring abortions in a bid to cover their trails. Mugendi regretted that despite a strict code of ethics barring teaching and non-teaching staff at the university from engaging in romantic and sexual relations with students at the institution, the same has been happening with at least ten suspects under investigations so far with victims often threatened with “dire consequences.”
He says, “Many of these students have also earned marks transmitted sexually. I would tell the university staff, if you want wives, go to Chuka, Kirinyaga or Murang’a universities; we won’t have any issues with you. But as long as it is our students, we have an obligation as Embu University’s administration to take care of them.”
