Defilements cases against school-going children have in the recent past escalated at an alarming rate here in our country, Kenya with the government unsure of what to do to tame this scourge.
According to a reliable source this late morning, a 12-year-old pupil from Kaggwa Girl's Primary School in Kisii has allegedly been defiled by her Deputy school head teacher. Shockingly, the medical test report that has been done at Nyansiongo Hospital has shown positive results. According to Engesa FM Journalist Nancy Kwamboka, the teacher has however since been arrested as investigations continue.
It is these rising cases of defilements that have resulted in increased pregnancies amongst young children and increased cases of HIV/AIDS. Also, it has led to early schdropoutsouts and early marriages.
Defining a minor is usually against the law and once found guilty, the penalty is normally severe i.e. serving many years in jail.
