A family in Tana River is in misery after their shamba boy impregnated all three of their teenage daughters at the same time.
Police stated that the teenage girls each delivered a set of twins at a Garissa hospital on Saturday, November 21, through a C-section.
The sisters who are minors were expected to sit for their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination in March next year.
According to the girls, the gardener often lured them into the farm where he would defile them.
“I did not know he was having affair with my sisters as well because we didn’t share that part of our lives with each other, as we didn’t trust each other with secrets,” one of the new mothers stated.
They revealed that the gardener used to lure them into the family farm where he would defile them. One of the sisters added that she would sneak to his room at night.
They disclosed that the man used to give them money and clothes.
On her part, the mother did not notice anything amiss with her daughters only that they flaunted new items which she had not facilitated.
“I noticed some funny set of underwear which caught my attention. But my last-born daughter kept saying she had bought them with her pocket money,” the mother explained.
It was only when she stumbled upon a message on one of her daughter’s phone informing the gardener of the pregnancy.
She discovered that the two were planning an abortion and that’s when she ambushed all her daughters with a pregnancy test the following morning, prompting two of them to confess.
According to the girls, the gardener fled after they told him that they were all pregnant.
Police have launched a manhunt for the man who left without a trace.
The first-born daughter was expecting triplets, but according to doctors, she could only deliver two children safely and without complications.
“They all had slim chances of survival, and that is why we looked for a specialist. But for the girl with the triplets to come out alive, we had to agree with the mother to choose between her daughter and the third infant,” a doctor stated.
All three girls were discharged from the hospital following the operations.
Over a period of three months in lockdown due to COVID-19, 152,000 Kenyan teenage girls became pregnant — a 40% increase in the country’s monthly average. These numbers, from early July, are some of the earliest pieces of evidence linking the COVID-19 pandemic to unintended pregnancies.
Public health officials and women’s rights advocates worry that the ongoing pandemic is delaying an adequate response to a growing s3xual reproductive health crisis.
One survey conducted by the Kenya Health Information System found that 3,964 girls under the age of 19 were pregnant in Machakos County alone.
And new data from the International Rescue Committee found that girls living in refugee camps have been particularly affected.
While only eight cases of teenage pregnancy were reported in June 2019 at Kakuma refugee camp in the northwest of the country, 62 pregnancies were recorded in June 2020. At Dadaab refugee camp, there was a 28% increase in reported teenage pregnancies during the April-June period, compared to the same period last year.
When Kenya introduced strict preventive measures to try to contain the spread of the coronavirus in April — including restricting movement and closing schools — accessing s3xual and reproductive health services became much harder.
Dr. Manisha Kumar, head of the Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) task force on safe abortion care, recently spoke about how the pandemic is affecting sexual reproductive health during an online press conference.
“During the pandemic, a lot of resources got pulled away from a lot of routine services and care, and those services were redirected to coronavirus response,” Kumar said.
