The administration of the Martyrs of Uganda School have been faulted for not taking any active steps to address sexual violence in the school and did not offer meaningful support to at least one student who had reported abuse to the school.

KHRC has also discovered a disappointing level of commitment to investigate the crime and arrest the perpetrator by Machakos Police Station.

” The fact that it has taken 5 weeks to arrest a serial perpetrator of sexual offenses against minors is testament to the slow progress of this case.” stated the statement in part.
