A high school student in Kisii who lost a testicle following an injury he incurred Saturday evening during an alleged corporal punishment has explained the ordeal.
The KCSE candidate from Bomachoge Borabu is said to have been found in possession of scribbled notes during a Business paper exam.
While lying in his hospital bed, he said the invigilator took him to the office where he, three other teachers and a guard allegedly beat him up, causing grievous harm.
"It is true the invigilator had caught me with a small paper I had scribbled notes but I had not used it. The teacher could hear none of the explanations. Instead, he forcefully whisked me out of class into the office," he said.
"At the office, he was joined by other teachers in beating me up... All this while I kept imploring them to forgive me but in vain," he said.
The 17-year-old said he began bleeding after the caning and was rushed to the hospital.
"They rushed me to Ogembo Hospital and I was later referred to Hema," he said.
An operation on the damaged testicle was carried out at Hema in Kisii early Monday.
Doctors who operated on him said the testicle was severely ruptured and had to be removed.
Kisii County Police Commander Charles Kasses said they have begun investigations into the incident.
"We have already deployed a team of our officers to start investigations. We will get to the bottom of the matter and arrests will be made," he stated.
