Tana Delta area leads in early pregnancy among pupils and students compared to all areas of Tana River County.

Statistics from the county education department show 43 cases have been recorded in the area since the beginning of this year alone.

In a statement to the media, Tana River’s director of education, James Nyaga, blamed Boda Boda riders and matatu crew for the incidents.

Nyaga says they have been offering free lifts to school girls and later demand sex.

However, Nyaga urged stakeholders to work together to end the vices.
