Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu has broken his silence after yet another student lost his testicle after he was assaulted by his teachers in a school in Kisii County.
A 19-year-old form four student at Nyabisia Secondary School, in Nyamache division, Bobasi constituency has stirred a debate after he narrated how teachers at the school brutalized him.
According to the student, five teachers and a school security guard brutalized him and damaged one of his testicles which doctors at Hema Hospital in Kisii said had raptured.
The students testicle raptured following the beating he received. It was removed at the hospital.
CS Machogu while commenting on the incident said the law should take its course.
Machogu termed the perpetrators as criminals and not teachers, who should be taken to court and dismissed from the service.
The CS said teachers are not allowed to go to that extent while administering discipline.
“To me, these are just criminals and I cannot even call them teachers. The law should take its course. They should be taken to court and dismissed from service,” Machogu was quoted by Nation as having said.
This is the second incident involving rogue teachers beating up and leading to a student losing his testis, after minor offences committed by the learners. A week ago, another student suffered the same fate after vicious beatings by his teachers.
