If ever there was a teacher under TSC who was decorated for talent and results it was the then Principal at Mangu and later Maseno school. Paul Otula. Talk of learners getting mean grade A. Talk of Basketball, Hockey, drama, music.. No teacher I know today alive who has achieved like Otula in and out of class.
Otula was haunted out of Maseno school LIKE A DOG WITH NO BENEFITS when boys alleged that one of them was sodomized in the dorm AT 2AM. There was no evidence. No culprit was arrested. And even if there was evidence, what was Otula expected to do? To stand as a watchman in dorms at 2 AM and separate those who wanted to get intimate?
*Mere allegation from learners that touch on rape but when investigated turn out to be cases of gayisim and lesbianism in in schools, have cost jobs and careers of teachers at Moi NAIROBI GIRLS, Alliance Boys, Maseno school etc. We shall not allow LUGULU GIRLS to be another graveyard for career of teachers because of some spoilt girls.*
Currently we are seeing all media, parents, and political leaders coming out to claim that girls were raped at LUGULU. PROVIDE EVIDENCE. I MEAN SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE. We will not accept some voodoo like allegations that border on hysteria and stress from learners to be used a a yard stick to kill careers and names of teachers or schools they teach in.
It is not the work of the principal or her teachers to prove that there is rape. Let those making claims prove it.
I am against this mob lynching of teachers and principals by Kenyans and media when their badly brought up children make heinous claims. THIS TIME WE ARE DETERMINED TO STOP MEDIA from Lynching us. Let them produce SCIENTIFIC evidence of RAPE OR ATTEMPTED RAPE AT LUGULU or forever keep silent.
