A court has ruled that two class five pupils be enrolled in different schools over claims of engaging in lesbianism.
The two who are aged 10 and 12 were first kicked out of a Mpeketoni school after the school head teacher termed them "bad influence" to fellow pupils.
This came after one of them was nabbed with a man in a local lodging, which opened the lid on the actions that have reportedly been ongoing between the girls.
The teacher was summoned to appear before Mpeketoni Senior Resident Magistrate Pascal Nabwana, where he defended the school's decision.
He said the school considers it best to rid itself of the girls on grounds that they might pass their said behaviours to fellow pupils.
“Jane (not her real name) influenced the other girl. I believe a new school would be a better option for them. They may recruit more young girls into the illegal behaviour,” he said in a sworn affidavit before the court on Thursday.
Justice Nabwana directed that the girls be enrolled in separate schools to avoid the trauma of carrying guilt, further directing that they be subjected to counselling sessions.
He also ordered the arrest and prosecution of persons alleged to have been involving themselves in drinking sprees and sexual engagements with the two girls.
“I hereby order the two subject be enrolled in new separate school immediately to prevent them from suffering psychological and emotional trauma for being viewed as villains,” said the judge.
