Civil servants sacked over sex with schoolgirls
By Joel Okwayo
Two civil servants have lost their jobs for allegedly seducing schoolgirls into having sex.
They were interdicted after parents complained of increased cases of defilement and love affairs between civil servants and some teachers with schoolgirls.
An agricultural officer and a public health technician in Butere District were sent home following reports of having love affairs with primary school pupils.
Yesterday, Western Provincial Disease Surveillance Co-ordinator Richard Nyamai said the health officer was served with an interdiction letter after the police and parents of the girl exposed the matter.
"It was not the first case for this officer. He was moved to Butere on disciplinary grounds after committing similar mistakes in his previous station," said Mr Nyamai.
Butere DC Seif Matata said the agricultural officer had also been served with an interdiction letter following a protest from parents.
Mr Matata said cases of schoogirl pregnancies were on the rise in the district. He said campaigns have been stepped up to ensure teachers adhere to their code of ethics.
In April, a teacher was interdicted after allegedly defiling eight girls. This was during the long April school holidays.
Kenya Alliance For Advancement of Children Western Regional Co-ordinator Wycliffe Ouma said fifteen girls were defiled in the district in two months.
Mr Ouma said they were compiling a data of rape, defilement and sexual harassment cases in the district and will come up with a report.
The Ministry of Education has also issued a stern warning against teachers getting involved in romantic affairs with their students.
