9 years old girl is among thousands of teenagers who have been impregnated in Muranga County.

Muranga women representative Sabina Chege said the girl comes from Ithanga, lower Gatanga. The area registered the highest number of teen pregnancies.

Women Rep Sabina Chege said this is a worrying trend and there is a need to act fast to stem it.

"If we have children as young as nine years bearing children what will their future be like?" she posed.

She said she has sought partnership with Fida to help the victims in seeking legal redress over sexual abuse.

"We are going to ensure that every defilement case reported is taken to court and we follow it up to the conclusion for the victim to get justice," she remarked.

She said these teen mothers will have to be allowed back to school for them to continue with their education and give them a chance to rebuild their future.

The legislator has suggested for establishing rescue 'Kiotas' for the teen moms who are rejected in their homes where they can find refuge and get a chance to continue with their education.

"Through my foundation, I will sponsor as many girls as I can to get back to school and I wish leaders can join hands in this mission," she remarked.

At the same time, Ahadi Kenya Trust boss Dr Stanley Kamau has hit back at leaders who are disputing the teenage pregnancy figures in Muranga accusing them of being dishonest.

Kamau said he did not cook any figures and he has no reason to do so but he gave a true reflection of what is on the ground.

"Someone sent me on a fact-finding mission and its the same person I report back to," he said.

"If anybody feels I am not telling the truth, they should do a thorough survey and prove me wrong," he said.

Last week, Muranga County Commissioner Mohammed Bare claimed that the teenage pregnancy figures in Muranga had been inflated, and they're less than 300 cases.
