SAD: Doctors Medically Castrate Boy After Brutal Beating From Teachers
Castrate Boy After Brutal Beating From Teachers
A Grade 8 student at Bitundugusu Primary School in Nyamira has reportedly been beaten, resulting in scrotal enlargement, emergency surgery, and the subsequent removal of his testicle. The incident occurred a week after another one in the county, in which a teacher used his Grade 4 class to pin down a student and beat him, gravely wounding him. The latest victim, a young boy at Bitundugusu Primary School in Kitutu Masaba Constituency, is still being treated at Bosongo Hospital, a private clinic in neighboring Kisii County, after losing a testicle in the most recent occurrence.
The youngster was brought to the hospital with excessively inflated reproductive organs, according to the medical staff, who spoke to the Nation. The physicians had to operate to relieve the boy’s severe discomfort after discovering that one of his testicles had been irreversibly injured in a condition they termed “testicular torsion.”
“He was in really bad shape when he was brought here. On Friday, we rushed to operate on him in case of an emergency. “He is still in the recovery process, but at this point, he can barely stand up on his own,” a nurse commented.
An injury to the groin or the area around the testicles has been identified as a potential cause of “testicular torsion” in the country.
The spermatic cord, which supplies the scrotum with blood, twists when a testicle rotates. Pain and swelling can come on suddenly and be quite severe because of the cutoff in blood supply. Prevalent amongst teenagers, primarily.
The adolescent was transferred from Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital to Bosongo Hospital (KTRH). Emergency surgery was necessary, so doctors at KTRH recommended sending him to a private hospital. Bosongo physicians, however, claimed they were unaware the youngster had been assaulted at school.
The 15-year-old child was beaten by his teachers on Friday, March 24, and was taken to Getare Dispensary in Nyamira County before being transferred to KTRH.
Investigations have commenced determining the circumstances under which the teachers reportedly castrated the youngster, and police in Nyamira acknowledged that the boy’s mother had filed an assault case under OB number 14/03/04/2023.On Tuesday, investigators from Manga Police Station also went to Bosongo Hospital.
Mr. James Mitugo, commander of the Nyamira County Police, said the force had received a complaint about the incident and was looking into it. In his words, “We have the case, and we are pursuing it,” Mr. Mitugo declared.
On Tuesday, investigators from the Manga Sub-County Department of Education visited the campus.
As this is the second occurrence of alleged physical punishment in the county, the outraged public has lashed out at the teachers and called on the Ministry of Education to crack down on disobedient educators who violate the code of discipline for students.
A distressed mother complained, “My son will never father a child,” and blamed the school for ruining her son’s chances of having children.
The boy’s condition has improved to the point that he can be a parent in the future, even with only one testicle. On Wednesday, The Nation visited the school and interviewed Mr. Elkanah Omari, the school’s deputy head teacher. We asked if he had heard about the student who was allegedly beaten by two teachers and then castrated.
Mr. Omari, who admitted, “I don’t know anything about it,” continued, “If you give me 20 minutes, I will go and obtain some information from a hospital where this youngster has been. He felt terrible. When I return, I will provide you with precise details.
When queried about the principal, who was reportedly involved in the boy’s brutalization, he told The Nation that the principal had left for a conference. After the youngster insulted a female classmate during a quarrel, he was beaten, and the math teacher was also absent, he said. He had left to coordinate a sporting event at a nearby school.
The deputy principal modified his narrative to reporters, saying that the student had been treated for “genital difficulties” at a hospital he would not identify. When challenged by reporters to identify the facility, he refused, saying, “That’s my secret weapon and I will divulge it if and when things become bad.”
After he refused to come with us to the hospital, he said he would give us an update in 20 minutes, but he never showed up. Our calls were likewise ignored.
The saddened mother recounted her son’s trauma, saying that he told her about the savage assault two days after it happened. He collapsed outside the front entrance on a Sunday evening. She probed him for the source of his ambulatory difficulties. Her initial assumption was that he was suffering from some sort of boil. He told me that following an argument with another student at school, his teachers had beaten him up, his mother stated.
His genitalia was in a lot of agonies, he told me, and the headmaster and another teacher had beaten him very badly. He had trouble standing and walking. “I went to the school to find out what happened to my son, but I was shooed away,” the distraught mother claimed. Later, she elaborated, “Once we met the headmaster, he became disrespectful and ordered me to take my son away and have him drugged or whatever I thought was right.
After some time, the mother inquired of her older son as to the cause of the boy’s wounds. She went on to say that her eldest son had tracked down the principal and demanded to know why he had been beaten so severely that he could no longer walk.
The principal denied he ever hit the student. “My kid got into a dispute with the principal, and the principal backed down, so we had to take the boy to the hospital,” the mother of four explained. We found the young youngster at Bosongo Hospital suffering greatly. He claimed his professors had hit him, and he was distraught and quiet. To protect the victim and his family’s privacy, The Nation cannot publish their names at this time. After telling her son’s mother that he underwent surgery and lost a testicle, the boy’s mother cried.
She wailed, “Why has God forsaken me?” I don’t know how to prepare my son for a world where he only has one testicle. What am I going to do about my two kids who have special needs? It’s difficult for me to take care of my other son’s medical needs. They’ve gone and done it again. The mother made an emotional plea to Ezekiel Machogu, the cabinet secretary for education, asking him to investigate the incident and hold those responsible for her son’s injuries accountable.
