A primary school pupil on Thursday landed in the hospital after three teachers beat him to the extent that his genitals were injured.
The incident happened at the Kamukunji Primary School in Kenya and doctors are preparing the young lad to undergo surgery to restore his testicles and stitch back his scrotum, which was injured during the beating.
Mary Wangeci, the mother of the boy received a call from the headteacher informing her of the incident.
She later gathered from other children that her son was found playing in class by a standard three class teacher and taken out for punishment.
“It was then that he was beaten up by three teachers in the staff room. He started bleeding in his private parts when he returned to class. The rest of the children informed the school head,” she said.
The boy was taken to Ngano Dispensary where he received first aid before being referred to Nyahururu county hospital.
The mother then reported the matter to Ngano Police Station but the three teachers are yet to be arrested.
They fled upon learning that the police had been dragged into the matter.
According to Dr. Wambui Ngatia who is attending to the boy at the hospital, the child appeared traumatised and may be unable to give any account of what transpired at the school until he regains full consciousness.
She said the patient was being prepared for surgery to restore the organs. She said the boy’s other body organs were found to be okay during the examination.
“The boy is now in stable condition, is able to walk, pass urine, and feed on his own,” she said.
The move caused protests by residents on Friday who demanded the arrest of the three teachers.
Nyandarua West OCPD Charles Cheruiyot said that police had launched a manhunt for the three teachers.
