‘Deal with predatory men’ King’angi talks tough over teen pregnancies

 

A report showing teen pregnancies have surged close to 4000 during the lockdown has upset Kenyans.

The pregnancy numbers covers the months of January to May 2020, and has put on the spotlight on authorities.

Maina and Kingangi weighed in on the matter asking who is to blame: Is it the parents, teachers or the men working from home?

Mwalimu Kingangi was outraged by the numbers and commented that

‘We need to start with those predatory men. Action needs to be taken ndio iwe funzo kwa wanaume wana hiyo tabia, you are busy trying to work to provide for your family then there are some men going the back door to impergnante our school going children. I’m just asking you according to the law, umepachika msichana wa shule mimba, what is supposed to happen? tell me, where is the law? mwalimu added, because who is bringing this problem? they are nto gettign pregnant alone, who are these men and what is happening!

‘My family came together to help me in my darkest period’ Rosemary Odinga recalls

The topic eleicited mixed reaction with some listeners blaming the teens, others saying parents have abdicated their role as some laid the blame on predatory men.

 

 

@AmozKipchirchir..
Morning Maina, I think kids lack proper parenting whereby parents don’t have time with them to tell them on existence unplanned pregnancies & diseases related to sexual acts. Kids are too idle now they require extra-attention

Parents to be blamed especially mothers. ‘coz mtoto umleavyo ndivyo akuavyo. Choices has consequences.

All are connected, certainly. But the entire blame for most evils, is, the children themselves.
Remember parents were also children.
My point is, we should start thinking twice before acting. As a Christian, I believe, and know, Jesus Christ came 4 a Reason. Follow HimLatin cross

Poor parenting, children have phones, dress however they want and address adults like they are agemates. They even go home late and parents are cool with that.

I support you fully, if i take you back a little, parents used to cane us like prisoners but look at the current generation, the parents are fighting whoever tries to correct the child..we are doomed.

Josephat Wesamba..
The number one to blame is parents because the responsibility of bringing up children is not with teachers!!!!! It’s the owner of the child

Too much exposure. A 13 year old girl nowadays knows much about sex due to easy access to social media and internet in general.

. But, why are we always blaming the boy child? How about we check on parenting, counselling to BOTH genders before they get here, coz probably they’re just age mates.. I mean, unless it’s rape, then I guess most of us have failed. #MainaAndKingangi

I can only blame the food we feeding our children.. Mimi Adolescence haikuni peleka mbio kama vile inapeleka watoto siku hizi i used to take tea with roasted bananas unlike nowdays the food we feed our children it like we giving them sildenafil. Old is gold.

Parents have to take responsibility. Children needs to be taught about their private parts if their bodies and cautioned never to allow anyone to touch. My mother taught me my private part is called penis and is used for passing urine only and no one should touch.

Idol mind is the devil’s work shop. This kids have been doing nothing for the last 2 months. What do you expect.

in this case, its the parenting. the way parents are raising their children is what is leading to such exploits. A daughter is raised knowing she can do anything as long a there is huge money benefits, you can see in current marriage state and Sons are raised without concerns

@sankuyantracy..
maybe they weren’t even ever told this “maneno” well How many parents open up to kids and speak to them on sex education? it’s very rare in Kenya kenyan minors depend on rumours literally and the syllabus ‘taught by teachers ‘ and body desires that’s Woman shruggingstrng.

Muambi James Ndambuki..
This is crazy maina..
This girl’s themselves are a mess..
They go out looking and thirsting for what they want..tthis pregnancies aren’t a shock plus our cultures are done..

Cheptugen Senior..
