The campaign dubbed, ‘Kula mama wacha mtoto’ translated loosely to ‘Spare the Child (from sexual harassment)….,’ is in a bid to eliminate cases of alleged sexual harassment on students.
The campaigned is spear headed by KUPPET’s National Vice Chairman, Julius Korir. Korir sensationally says ‘KUPPET will not defend teachers who indulge in sexual relationships with their students.’
