Kisumu teacher arrested for recruiting students into lesbianism
The teacher had recruited at least 16 female students into the vice.
According to the parent she learned about the issue after students went on strike following failure by the school principal to address the matter.
“It started from one student confessing having been lured by the teacher to engage in the act in exchange for money, and the issue escalated with more students opening up,” said the parent, who has since recorded a statement with the police.
Apparently, the teacher had been inviting them individually to her house to help them with revision, before luring them with cash to accept her sexual advances.
At some point the teacher was said to be convincing the girls to spend the night at her house, where they were given goodies.
“The student complained of abdominal pain, and we thought it was mere pain coming with the menstrual cycle. But the girl revealed what had been happening to her,” he said.
Students who rejected the teacher’s advances were intimidated in class through unwarranted punishments.
The County Director of Education Sabina Aroni confirmed having been aware of the matter, which was reported to her last week. She said the arrest came as they were pursuing the teacher.
Kisumu County Police Commander John Kamau confirmed that the teacher was being held at Kombewa Police Station and that she would appear in a Maseno court later.
