Parents Cannot Sue Teachers, Schools For Punishing Indiscipline Students – CJ Koome.
Chief Justice Martha Koome has warned parents who regularly sue teachers and schools after their children have been expelled for violating school rules that such cases will be dismissed and the parents will be held liable for the costs.
Koome stated on Monday at Loreto Limuru Girls’ High School in Kiambu County that all forms of indiscipline will not be tolerated and that parents must take responsibility for morally raising their children.
CJ Koome proposed an improvement to child protection laws as one way to ensure that children are fully protected, warning that any suspects found guilty of child abuse will face a sentence of at least 20 years in prison.
“We do not encourage indiscipline at all we have the obligation to bring up our children, to encourage them, support them,” CJ Koome said.
“Whoever violates a girl child or a boy child will be imprisoned for 20 years to pay for the pain and the agony that they caused the victims.”
Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu, who accompanied CJ Koome, challenged parents to be involved in their children’s upbringing and to make time for them.
“And if you’re not part of your child’s school, anything else you’ll do will be in vain. When you’re part of your child’s life and you take active participation in school, you will just marvel at the success of your child,” noted Mwilu.
Appellate court judge Mumbi Ngugi, for her part, urged the government to ensure that most national public schools have special classes for students with disabilities, so that they have the same opportunities as other students in the country.
