The girls were then forced to walk barefoot for a whole week, resulting in painful blisters. ‘They were called criminals by the deputy principal and told that it’s a privilege for them to be given food. In addition, they were isolated from the rest of the girls, during class and exam time,’ wrote Makworo. ‘They were then tagged with “DON’T COME NEAR ME!” inscriptions on manila papers,’ Continued Makworo.

He went further to say that they had obtained medical reports re-affirming their claims. The reports indicate that the girls were traumatized and injured physically.

Girls Barred from Sitting End of Term Examinations

As if it wasn’t enough, the girls were barred from sitting their end of term examinations. The girls have been instructed to report on May 7th.

 The parents of the affected girls are furious with the above incidence. They kept asking if it was justified for the girls to be tortured this way by the administration.

‘Why did they take such inhumane actions? Why didn’t they talk to the parents before taking any physical measure? We want Nyeri County Education officials to take up the issue!’ ended Makworo’s Post.

Jarson Nzioh Key Baadhi ya wazazi bure kabisa!

Joy Wesonga This can only be dealt with by the Education office after listening to the two parties.

Everlyne Kituyi Imagine that you are a parent of a lesbian. Shamefully seeking sympathy instead of counseling your child.lt It can’t happen if you are truly a Christian seeking God’s intervention.

Alex Mutwiri Congratulations madam principal…
Put more effort madam deputy…
Spare the rod spoil the kid……..…See More

Godfrey Mwebi Hii miguu haikai ya msichana…

Catherine Makokha Okutoyi Wee.. Mzazi, slow down stop being too hyper

Murunga Manoah Telling the wrong people TSC offices are open from Monday to Friday so seek assistance to the right people.
