Teachers in the country have been warned against engaging in romantic relationships with their female learners.
Acting Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu says such amorous teachers tarnish the good name of the noble profession.
Lady Justice Mwilu spoke at the inauguration ceremony of newly appointed Teachers Service Commission (TSC) Chairman Jamleck Muturi John alongside one other commission member at the Supreme Court in Nairobi yesterday.
Coming out as a passionate champion of the girl child, Justice Mwilu implored the Commission to deal with such cases firmly and decisively, even if it means interdicting guilty teachers.
"Teaching is a noble profession," she said , adding, "Teachers are presumed to be role models to their students; deal with rogue teachers firmly to ensure justice for these girls."
Even as the DCJ asked the incoming chairman to crack the whip on such teachers, she also urged the Commission to champion teachers' welfare with dedication, saying they are one of the most important assets in any society.
As she wished the new chair and the commission in general well, she seemed to be sending a strong message that the Judiciary will execute cases of defilement prudently and professionally.
