Nyandarua boy in hospital after teachers squash his private parts
The three teachers have since fled
The three teachers at Kamukunji Primary School where the incident happened have since fled the school after police moved in to investigate the atrocity that will certainly revive the debate on corporal punishment.
Doctors preparing the young lad to undergo surgery to restore his testicles and stitch back his scrotum said he was traumatised by the injuries.
Mary Wangeci, the mother of the boy received a call from the headteacher informing her of the incident.
She later gathered from other children that her son was found playing in class by a standard three class teacher and taken out for punishment.
"It was then that he was beaten up by three teachers in the staff room. He started bleeding in his private parts when he returned to class. The rest of the children informed the school head," she told Standard Digital at the school.
The boy was taken to Ngano Dispensary where he received first aid before being referred to Nyahururu county hospital. The mother then reported the matter to Ngano Police Station but the three teachers are yet to be arrested.
According to Dr Wambui Ngatia who is attending to the boy at the hospital, the child appeared traumatised and could not give any account of what transpired at the school until he regained full consciousness.
She said the patient was being prepared for surgery to restore the organs. She said the boy’s other body organs were found to be okay during the examination.
