Std. Five Girls Expelled from School over Lesbianism Claims

Two Standard Five pupils aged 10 and 12 years old from Mpeketoni have been expelled from school after they were accused of practicing lesbianism in the school.

The headteacher, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the minors, has already been summoned in court to explain his decision to expel the two minors.

According to the headteacher, he decided to expel the pupils, saying they were “bad influence” to others.

It is said the decision was reached after one of the girls who had been rumoured to be a lesbian was arrested at a local lodging with a man and the mother failing to reveal why her daughter was not in school.

It was not yet clear which parameters the school used to arrive at the decision that the two minors had indeed been engaging in the unlawful act.

In a sworn affidavit, the headteacher explained that the school management had taken action to “save the rest of the pupils” from their bad behaviour.

“Jane (not her real name) influenced the other girl. I believe a new school would be a better option for them. They may recruit more young girls into this illegal behaviour,” said the headteacher.

However, in his ruling, Mpeketoni Resident Magistrate Pascal Nabwana issued a directive for the two minors to be enrolled in two separate schools. Nabwana said it was clear the two minors needed counselling.

“I hereby order the two subjects be enrolled in new separate schools immediately to prevent them from suffering psychological and emotional trauma for being viewed as villains,” said the magistrate.

He further ordered the Director of Public Prosecutions to investigate and charge all persons named as having been involved in drinking sprees and sexual escapades with the minors.
