Barely a week after the a Kenyan newspaper covered a story about the rising number of lesbians in Pangani Girls High School, the administration has now sent home eight girls over the matter.
The school’s principal, Pacifica Nyambong’i said that a group of eight students in Form Two, who were also jointly being investigated for arson claims, had been sent home and others readmitted after undergoing counseling and promising to change.
The principal admitted that some Form Two students confessed to being lesbians who had lovers in the school while other girls denied the allegations.
“I received a note listing some girls as suspected lesbians who also planned to burn down the school on September 10th, we embarked on investigations to unearth the truth,” Ms Nyambog’i revealed.
Those who confessed to being lesbians were forgiven, counseled and readmitted but those who denied were sent home.
The parents of those sent home have however mounted a strong defence to the allegations claiming that their girls were beaten during the interrogations in order to admit by force.
