SHAME:Class eight pupil pregnant after two-year love affair with Nakuru county officer
A class eight pupil in Nakuru has said she is six months pregnant, by a Nakuru county officer who has been her lover for two years.
The Keringet Boarding Primary School pupil told the press on Wednesday that “he pays me Sh50 whenever he sleeps with me”.
The officer works at Kuresoi sub-county headquarters.
She said the officer, 50, also bought her an SIM card and mobile phone for use whenever he needed her.
“We started dating when I was in class six,” she said.
The pupil said that during holidays, the officer would pick and drop her using a county government vehicle while her parents were away.
Her headteacher, Jane Songok said the minor has been living with her aunt since her mother died five years ago.
She said that a catholic nun based in Kisumu has been paying school fees for the girl and her five siblings.
The man allegedly offered a member of the school board Sh50,000 for silence on the matter but the deal flopped.
Songok said: “I reported the matter to the education office and we want serious action taken against the man.”
The headteacher said the record of messages in the girl’s SIM card will be key to investigations.
“The officer’s children are in good schools yet he takes advantage of his government job and vehicle to spoil vulnerable minors,” she said.
“I will not rest until police take firm action against him.”
Keringet location assistant chief Nicholas Kering said he was liaising with police officers to ensure the county officer is arrested.
Kuresoi deputy OCPD Paul Rono acknowledged statements written by the minor’s guardians and said investigations were underway.
The media should put relentless highlighting of this and other cases to ensure such sexual are removed from society.
