Three teachers are on the run after they smashed the testicles of a class one pupil of Kamukunji Primary School in Nyandarua county.
The pupil is nursing serious injuries on his private parts, after he was punished by the three teachers.
The seven-year-old boy is currently admitted at the Nyahururu County Referral Hospital where doctors are trying to restore his smashed testicles.
According to the boy’s mother, she received a phone call from the school head teacher on Thursday afternoon informing her that her child had a problem.
“When I arrived at the school I found my son unconscious at the staff room with some teachers were trying to give him first aid.
“There were also stains of blood in his school short. I tried to enquire from the teachers what had happened to my son and why they had not taken him to hospital but no one answered me,” said the distressed mother.
The mother, a peasant farmer, noted that she later learnt from his son’s classmates that a teacher who found them playing in class punished them.
KICKED PRIVATE PARTS
“His classmate told me that a standard three class teacher took them to the staff room, after he found them playing in class. At the staff room, my son’s classmate told me, two other teachers joined in punishing them and that one of them kicked my son’s private parts,” she added.
His mother told the Nairobi News that she took her son and rushed him to Ngano dispensary before he was referred to the Nyahururu hospital.
According to Dr Wambui Ngatia, the boy’s left scrotum had a 6 cm tear and had been seriously damaged as a result of the attack but we found his other body organs okay after examining him.
“When the boy was brought to the hospital he appeared traumatized and could not give any account of what transpired at the school until he regains consciousness,”said Dr Ngatia.
“For now he is in a stable condition and he is able to walk, pass urine, and feed on his own, but we are preparing to take him for surgery to restore the damaged organs,”added the doctor.
The teary mother is demanding for justice for his son, saying that she has reported the matter to Ngano Police Station but the three teachers are yet to be arrested.
However, Nyandarua West Officer Commanding Police Division, Joseph Cheruiyot has said that they have launched a manhunt to arrest the three teachers who are still at large.
At the same time, another child is admitted at the same the same hospital after he was brutally punished by his father.
The 8-year-old boy sustained a fracture on the head, arm and back injuries after his step-father, who is a Kenya Defense Force officer, beat him for being sent away from school for reportedly sleeping in class.
Confirming the incident, Nyandarua North Officer Commanding Police Division, Timon Odingo said the boy was taken to the hospital by neighbours who heard his screams and came to his rescue.
Mr Odingo added that the boy’s mother, who recently gave birth to another child, could not prevent her husband from punishing the boy as she is also nursing her two-week old infant.
“The neighbors brought the boy to hospital after they noticed that he had suffered bruises and severe injuries,” said the police boss.
He said the KDF soldier was later arrested by police at his Manguo estate home in Nyahururu town.
