It is said that the suspects even threatened their victims with dire consequences if they would ever disclose them.

“Many of these students have also earned marks transmitted sexually. I would tell the university staff, if you want wives, go to Chuka, Kirinyaga or Murang’a universities; we won’t have any issues with you. But as long as it is our students, we have an obligation — as Embu University’s administration — to take care of them,” said Prof. Mugendi.

The Vice Chancellor has urged the students who feel sexually harassed by their lecturers not to hesitate in reporting the same to the administration.
