Kenya National Union of Teachers has called for the scrubbing of end of year long holidays in a bid to curb teen pregnancies in schools.

ACK Archbishop Jackson ole Sapit leads Kajiado Church’s Silver Jubilee on November 11.

Secretary Wilson Sossion made the call on Sunday in Kajiado during the celebration of ACK’s Silver Jubilee in the region when he claimed long holidays are sources of pregnancies among teens.

Sossion said the number of girls getting pregnant in primary and secondary schools at over 13, 000 in the entire country calls for heavenly intervention through the churches.

“I am also appealing to the Kenya National Examination Council to consider providing supplementary tests to pregnant students three to four months after they have given birth as a way of motivating them,” said Sossion.

He emphasized that more free time being provided for teens who are still in school creates a devilish mind thus make them indulge in ungodly activities.

“Without the Church we cannot raise upright children. Let us embrace the good work Churches are doing to inculcate Christian values to our children,” said Sossion.

Sossion, who is also a nominated MP said; “We are living in a society where values and value systems are breaking down. Our children require a befitting environment in the Church in order to enable them grow up fearing God.”

He said the alarming pregnancies in schools will eventually make the country slide in to hopelessness in the near future because already the children are becoming rogues at tender age.

His remarks were supported by ACK Archbishop the Right Reverend Jackson ole Sapit, Kajiado Central MP Memusi Kanchory and Governor Joseph Lenku along with host bishop Gadiel Lenini.

Kanchory said the Church has a huge responsibility in moulding a society, adding that most of those children who were made pregnant come from families with no connect with Churches around them.

“Our daughters getting pregnant at teen age will not take Kenya anywhere but instead we will have a state of hopelessness without a future,” said Kanchory.

He appealed to the Church not to accept “blood/dirty” money for politicians in the name of building their churches if they want to grow in clean spirit.
