NAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 19 – The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) says headteachers and teachers are mainly to blame for the high number of teenage pregnancies that has been witnessed in the recent past.

Speaking during the release of this Year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education exam results on Monday, Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia stated that thirty- two teachers were last month de-registered as a result of this.

She urged school boards and managers to ensure they do not employ such people as they endanger the future of the children.

The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) Chairman George Magoha urged parents to take their responsibilities serious and pointed out that no supplementary exams shall be set for pregnant candidates.
