According to the reliable reports from Daily Nation Newspaper this afternoon, the school, Kapropita Girls High School that is found in Baringo County, has seen widespread uproar from even activists.
The activists are calling on the motive of the management of the institution for issuing such an insensitive call to parents and guardians of the young girls who some are orphaned or come from single parent homes.
The Principal of the School, Jennifer Kiprono, however, said that the move was necessitated for the need for father figures in the girls' lives to take a more active role in the parenting of their children.
She said that during the Covid period, many young girls got pregnant and this was precipitated by the fact that there was no authoritative figure in the girls lives.
Kapropita Girls High School principal went on to clarify that there was no ill motive behind the move as a similar meeting had taken place a month ago with the Form Fours and only mothers of the girls were involved and no one complained.
