NAIROBI, KENYA: The management of a school in Laikipia has raised concerns over increasing cases of trespass including casual sex in the institution’s compound at night.
The management of Tharua Primary School in Laikipia Central Sub-County claimed sex partners invade the school from the nearby Ngare Nyiro trading centre, where they have sex in the open.
Mr Dominic Kabugi, the school’s chairman said the partners leave behind used condoms, which pupils collect from the field and near classes everyday.
“This is a serious issue that needs to be addressed urgently. They invade the school at night and carry out their immorality in the field at night. Despite finding used condoms every morning, it also exposes pupils to a health risk,” said Kabugi.
Kabugi requested the ministry of education to erect a fence around the institution, to prevent the sex lovers from further intrusion within the compound.
The official said the intruders seize the opportunity due to lack of a perimeter fence, adding that other people also use the school’s toilets without authority.
According to Kabugi, the adjacent Ngare Nyiro trading centre has one public toilet and which is usually closed at night.
Kabugi noted that some residents and traders in the centre use the sanitation facility even during the day when learning is still going on, which is contrary to the school rules and regulations.
“We are not secure, since strangers come in, use our toilets and leave at will,” said Kabugi.
Laikipia County Assembly Nominated Member Mr John Nderitu condemned the act and called for urgent fencing of the institution.
He urged the assembly to set aside some money to enable fencing of the school and the same time requested the county government to construct more toilets at the trading centre.
“This is an act of immorality which risks spoiling our children. The County government should also come in and fence the institution, if it really cares for the children in the school,” said Nderitu, who also represents disabled people.
He added a special unit for children with disabilities is set to be opened early next year, adding that it would be wrong to expose them to such behavior.
