'Rich' Narok man with 100 acres of land in trouble for failing to educate his 20 children
Reports indicate that none of the man's children has been taken through the education system to completion.
In fact, Narok South Deputy County Commissioner Felix Kisalu says that most of them have dropped out in lower primary school.
A 60-year-old man in Narok South Sub-County is in trouble after he failed to take his 20 children - borne from different wives - to school, despite being capable of doing so.
Reports indicate that none of the man's children has been taken through the education system to completion. In fact, Narok South Deputy County Commissioner Felix Kisalu says that most of them have dropped out in lower primary school.
Confirming the arrest of the "irresponsible" sexagenarian, Kisalu says that he currently has two children who sat for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination, but haven't joined secondary school.
His two children in high school (form two and form three) have had to drop out too because of fee arrears.
100 acres of land
Preliminary investigations have revealed that the man has over 100 acres of land which he leases, but he squanders all the money in Ololunga market and neglects his family.
He is currently in custody at Ololunga Police Station and is set to be arraigned in court by the Children's Department.
In the meantime, Kisaliu says that he has cancelled the land lease, putting a condition that whoever will lease it should send the money directly to the children's respective schools.
"I have also directed my chiefs to identify such parents for action. We cannot allow children to stay at home over lack of school fees yet parents have sheep, goats and cattle. We shall auction them and take the money to school," Kisalu said.
