Pupils receive sanitary towels  

Pupils from seven primary schools in Bumula Constituency, Bungoma County have received menstrual sanitary towels from the area Member of Parliament Mr. Jack Wamboka.

Through the Wamboka Wanami Foundation, the school-going girls received the donation to assist them take care of their hygiene and attending school without failure during their menstrual cycle.

The MP said that the lack of adequate sanitary towel supplies for use by school-going girls during the menstrual period had led to poor performance in school by the girls as they missed out on lessons because of fear and lack of self-esteem.

He noted that through the Foundation, boys from the schools would receive guidance and counseling services to impart to them life skills that will enable them to go through various stages of life with minimal challenges.

Wamboka who was speaking at Lunao primary school in the area asked parents and the community in general to avoid settling defilement cases outside court saying it was a way of condoning the vice that it was negatively impacting the lives of the affected girls.

The culprits, he said, must face the law to bring a stop to such immoral acts in society.
