Kisii: Three teachers arrested for assaulting student, causing him to lose testicle

Three teachers from Nyabisia Secondary School in Bobasi, Kisii County have been arrested for allegedly assaulting a 19-year-old student, injuring his private parts in the process.

According to Nyamache Acting OCPD Justus Katana, the Form Four student named four teachers as well as workers who were behind the assault. Three of the suspects have since been arrested.

“Kijana alitaja walimu wanne na wafanyikazi wengine ambao kwa jumla tulikuwa na washukiwa watano na tumekamilisha uchunguzi, tumekamata washukiwa watatu na wawili bado wako mbioni tunaendelea kuwatafuta,” said the police boss.

The student who is currently admitted at Hema Hospital after one of his testicles was removed by doctors narrated the ordeal he underwent at the hands of his teachers.

He said during the ongoing examinations at their school, students got access to a circulating leaked paper before one of the teachers caught him in the company of other students.

The student painfully narrated how five teachers, including his maths teacher and the school’s security guard, pounced on him with kicks and blows before he was taken to a school's ‘torture chamber’ where he was tied to a log, both limbs apart to make him unable to resist beatings.

He said he pleaded with his teachers to instead cancel his paper when one of them inflicted a sharp pain below his belt to an extent that he couldn't walk anymore.

Doctors from Hema Hospital said they had to completely remove one of the testes since it was completely charred ostensibly as a result of severe beatings.

It is alleged that when teachers realised the harm caused, they told the victim not to report the matter to the school head.
