Nyamira County Head of Teaching Services, Catherine Mwenda, has warned that all abusive teachers in the county are at risk of dismissal or legal action.
Ms Mwenda warned that the commission and the law will not do anything to the teachers that the increase in various abuses by teachers in schools and school children in Nyamira district is appalling. reported.
“Teachers, who are supposed to be the primary protectors of children even from abusive parents and caregivers, are doing the opposite, terrorizing society for the safety of young children, vulnerable and vulnerable; It should be a safe place,” he said.
The director of TSC explained that bullying can vary from using physical abuse to specific students or physical punishment, but it can also be sexual to the point where TSC can ensure justice is meted out to abused students.
“TSC deals with teachers who sexually assault students, whether the court acquits them or not. “Our investigation is good, and if our investigation confirms that the reported cases of sexual violence are true, the teacher’s TSC will be revoked if you are not employed by the government and if you are a civil servant, you will be fired.”
“When sexual harassment is reported to our office in writing, we immediately start an investigation to prevent further abuse because this teacher is dangerous for vulnerable and vulnerable students throughout the school because he can do this to some students who dare to report,” he said.
After finding out that the whistleblower teacher is being investigated for allegations of sexual harassment, they said that they did not go out of their way to get the applicant to drop his complaint and withdraw his initial statement, but unfortunately, the dubious plan was not taken hostage. When reporting, the victim’s hand account is evidence.
“On the occasion of the first report, the complainant was really angry and therefore sought justice and we wrote that the first is a true record of what happened or happened and the first will not count as a modified version. report because the witness or the complainant will be trained and they will be reconciled,” Mendwa said.
“The Nyamira District TSC is currently investigating 11 cases of alleged sexual abuse of students by teachers and we are handling all these cases professionally and if proven beyond doubt, the teacher in question will be fired and the TSC number will be canceled as he has it. It is proven that he is a serious threat to students ,” he said.
In this case, TSC does not stand in the way of seeking justice for students who have been bullied as minors, because they have a strong investigative mechanism in place to bring the perpetrators to justice.
However, there are community members or students or teachers who say they are sexually harassing students, but they never take it personally and report complaints or observations in writing to our office.
We consider them evil rumors or witch hunters and don’t bother to pursue them. Direct written reporting is the only way to enable the KPK to conduct a speedy and evidence-based investigation,” he said.
Billy Adera, Nyamira South District Children’s Officer, said sexual violence against children in the area is on the rise and the public must be vigilant and find mechanisms to prevent such serious abuse.
He said it was important to take steps to remind anyone concerned about child abuse to stay safe and punish perpetrators as a way to protect themselves from sexual abuse. Unfortunately, it leaves victims with lasting psychological trauma.
It has created a task force of district and national government officials to collaborate and accelerate child sexual issues, which is much needed to save our children from the violence and tragedies caused by sexual abuse.
