No Justice yet For Mother of Twin School Girls Defiled and Impregnated By Neighbors in Turbo

It has been almost a year since a strange but sad predicament hit Tebeson village in Ng’enyilel ward, Turbo Sub County.

This is after two girls, twins, for that matter, were impregnated, by two different men – all of who are well known to the family and neighbors.

To make the matters worse, the two were still pupils and they were lured into early motherhood by boys who had just finished their form four examinations.

The twin girls have since given birth and returned to school, but things have never been the same, neither for them nor for the mother – now being forced to take care of her grandchildren.

For the mother, it has been almost a year of looking for justice that looks a mirage.

She reported the matter to the police but since then, no action has ever been taken against those that defiled and impregnated her two girls.

I reported the matter to the police station where I wrote a statement and thereafter I was sent to the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret where tests were conducted and it was established that indeed my children had been defiled,” the mother told Uasin Gishu News in an interview at her home.

The mother notes that the perpetrators are known since they are neighbors but they have never been arrested or questioned.

This is despite the fact that their actions forced the underage girls to remain at home for almost a year due to pregnancy.

A similar report was made to area education officials, in the hope they will act and protect the girls’ interests, but just as was the case with the police, nobody acted.

I went to the Turbo Sub-county Education office and reported the matter. They promised to look into it but up to now, nothing has been done,” notes the mother, who laments that the suspects are walking freely within the village while she struggles to take care of her grandchildren.

I have no food and no clothing for them,” she notes.

With the girls back to school, the mother has been forced to take over motherhood roles, taking care of the two grandchildren – and this means she has no time to go look for something to put on the table for her family – including the twins and two grandsons.

I am suffering since I cannot go to work and nobody has helped me. It is now a challenge affording food for the young ones and myself,” the mother says.

Her twins are now in class seven. Had it been not for the pregnancy, they would be preparing for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE).

Though they are in school, the pregnancy is still haunting them as they have a child to take care of. They cannot focus on their studies.

Their children are now about 10 months old.

I am suffering a lot since I am supposed to go home and breastfeed my child. I cannot concentrate in school. My performance has deteriorated. At times, I have to leave school early and search for some manual jobs in order to get some money to supplement the family needs,” narrates one of the twins.

I am supposed to work after school so that I may help my jobless mother. In school we face challenges where students discriminate against us and call us parents,” adds another twin.

Even though the girls are back to school, the mother is hoping they will get justice.

She is challenging the Ministry of Education and the police to take action against those responsible for her girls’ pregnancy.

“I want justice for my children. I am calling upon Prof. George Magoha and the Inspector General of Police to come to our rescue and ensure we get justice. The suspect should be behind bars,” the mother says.

We are appealing to well-wishers to come to our aid as we have no food,” she adds.

Dorcas Sing’oei, a neighbor says the family has been traumatized.

With their poor financial background, Sing’oei notes the mother is struggling to take care of the children and her grandchildren whom she says are malnourished.

This lady is suffering. She has no means of taking care of her children and grandchildren. The government has not accorded them any support. We plead and hope that well-wishers will come to their aid,” says the neighbor.
