Day of the African Child Celebrated
Girls from Nyahururu DEB primary school display a placard proclaiming one of their rights. Cases of child abuse, especially defilement, are on the rise in Laikipia and Nyandarua Counties. Through skits, the children called on security agents and the society at large not to resort to Kangaroo courts to resolve child abuse cases such as defilement claiming they deprived them of their dignity and innocence, Friday, June 16, 2017.
