6 teachers arrested over a viral video
6 teachers arrested over a viral video. Since a video of the pupils engaging in a indecent act went viral, six teachers from Itumbe Primary School, Nyamache Subcounty have been arrested after the police traced the footages to Bobasi Constituency, Itumbe DOK Primary School.
The trending video came to limelight after wide sharing and Kenyans and parents raised eyebrows about it, teachers can be seen cheering and supporting the pupils as they perform indecent acts in front of the school and other pupils.
Additionally, the teachers who were watching and supporting them recorded,without a second thought, a video of these pupils and posted it on social media where it has spread like bushfire.
Society looks on teachers to guide and mentor learners in all aspects of life and serve as positive role models to the learners and society at large. The six teachers, however, did not behave in this manner as it is required. The teachers encouraged the students rather than vilifying them from that indecent act.
On social media, some people said that the Learners were engaging in a practical lesson, maybe required in their learning ,that cannot be permitted at all and should be strongly condemned as it states in the Teachers Code of Conduct Act.
If the arraigned teachers are found guilty of the act, cheering the pupils instead of prohibiting the act, the relevant rule of court will be bestowed on them.
