Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu has sent a stern warning to sexual offenders stating the law will not be lenient on them.
Speaking at St.Gabriel school in Mwingi town where she was the chief guest during a thanksgiving ceremony for 2022 class 8 pupils, Mwilu said the minimum jail term years for sexual offenders is 15 years.
"We live in a decent country and we will deal with sexual perpetrators who are destroying our girls' lives," she said.
Mwilu also added that the judiciary under Chief Justice Martha Koome is working towards ensuring every citizen gets justice.
"Be it a child, woman or a man, we will ensure everyone gets justice for them to be able to enjoy being patriotic," she added.
Mwilu also urged parents to be very vigilant and ensure they give teachers a good time while in school.
"Do not leave everything to the teachers, ensure the children are well-behaved and disciplined," she said.
Kitui Catholic Diocese Education Secretary, Dr. Julius Muthamba urged the government to reconsider changing a directive that KPSEA learners below 30 in a single classroom will be merged with other schools.
"This move will make the schools very far for some learners and this will encourage school absenteeism and dropouts," he added.
Muthamba called on the government to ensure smooth learning by ensuring learners remain in their schools.
