Nyariki location Chief Samson Nyantaria has blamed the high rate of school dropouts on parents, saying they had completely neglected their parental duty.

He said many children had been left on their own to experiment with their bodies on several vices that could lead to teen pregnancy, alcohol, drug and substance abuse among other negative practices.

“These children need constant guidance and counselling until they mature to stand on their own.” He said.
The Chief was addressing a public Baraza whose objective was to find ways of curbing drug abuse and school dropouts in the area.

He cautioned Bodaboda riders who are allegedly prime culprits in impregnating school girls to desist from preying on school girls saying that their days were numbered.

“The law will not spare you, when you are caught with a school girl you will end up in jail,” said the chief
He said that his office had put strategies in place to arrest illicit brew sellers and irresponsible bar owners who he alleged sold alcohol to school boys and girls.

He asked students to shun and report anybody who tried to lure them into the use of drugs and indulgence in any evil activities.
