Why are pornographic sites accessible in Kenya? Who needs them? CS Magoha asks
| Jun 18th 2020 | 1 min read
Education CS Prof George Magoha on Thursday strongly criticized
those taking advantage of school-going children, alluding some of the cases of
early pregnancies to early exposure to pornography.
While speaking in Nakuru on the reopening of schools, the CS
started by saying pornographic sites should be blocked especially to learners.
“I am going to lobby the Cabinet and by extension the
President to consider changing the law to block information related to
“Why are such sites accessible in Kenya? Who needs them?” he
Adding: “Do not tell us that since it is accessible in the
US it should be accessible here. Many countries have blocked them and their
culture is better.”
On the recent report on teenage pregnancies in various
counties, Magoha urged parents to teach their children to learn to say no and
make morally upright decisions.
This is after a story that was widely shared on social media
claimed over 4000 school girls have been impregnated since schools were closed.
The CS, however, cast aspersions over the figures saying
they look obnoxious.
“Did these children go and report that they are pregnant?
Who is giving us these figures? They seem to be definitive figures.
“Could some NGOs who are keen on pushing sexual education be
exaggerating these numbers?” he asked.
Magoha insisted that the Ministry will interrogate the
figures to find out whether they have blown out of proportion.
