This comes barely days after Machakos County raised the alarm after 4,000 cases of teenage pregnancy were reported in four months.
According to a report by the Children’s Department Technical Working Group 3,800 girls over 15 years and 200 others under 14 years became pregnant between January to May.
The report was released on Tuesday by Machakos children’s officer Salome Muthama during the Day of the African Child celebrations.
However, the Machakos government has refuted claims that the county has recorded over 4, 000 cases of teenage pregnancy in four months.
Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, parents are said to have little time for their children at home as learning institutions are closed.
