Following the high rising cases of children abduction, defilement, rape, sodomy and drug abuse witnessed in the recent past in Thika, Juja Ruiru and Kiambu town, parents have been advised to be on high alert and keep their children under tight security.
This comes as schools close down and children go home to spend the extensive holiday characterized by a long festive season.
Addressing parents, teachers and pupils at Aimeel Preparatory school in Ruiru sub-county, Kiambu sub-county Education director Roselyne Ritaba observed that the society was rotten and that both the girl and boy child are endangered species where human-like beasts are on the prowl.
The director said that news of societal vices that dehumanize children have become the order of the day and urged the parents to provide proper parental care to their children at home. “Its high time parents exercised their parental guidance to their children this time round to minimize these cases, “said Ritaba.  
Her sentiments were echoed by among other speakers Chrisphine Oluoch who is the principle Aimel Preparatory school in Ruiru and Goal Setters Foundation counselor Njoki Mwaura who urged parents not to abscond their parenting role.
Ritaba said that news of children abduction in Ruiru and Kiambu as a whole was rampant and that young children have become the main target stating that in most cases, the abductors take advantage of bad economic challenges to make a kill from innocent parents.
Oluoch on his part said the increasing number of school girls giving birth during the recently ended KCPE examination was an eye opener that the rot in the society has reached record high. He said most of the pregnancies were as a result of rape. He told parents to engage their children fully to avoid idleness and roaming in town centers especially when they are alone.
More than 200 pupils from class one to eight graduated and were awarded certificates.
