Kenyan police allegedly bans night prayers to curb teenage pregnancy

- Kenyan government has reportedly banned night prayers in churches

- The session known as Kesha has been stopped following the rise in early pregnancy among teenagers in Narok county

- The move was taken in a bid to curb teenage pregnancy as reported by Narok County Commissioner, George Natembeya

Reports claim Kenyan government has put a ban on night prayers held in churches in a bid to curb teenage pregnancies. The Narok County Commissioner, George Natembeya revealed in a recent interview that the move was taken following the rise of early pregnancy among teenagers in the county.

Natembeya who was speaking at the campaign against child pregnancy shared that 17 girls from Suswa Girls Secondary School in Narok County were found pregnant just a month ago. The alarming rise in such despicable act led to the decision to ban evening prayers held in churches, known as Kesha.

There's the belief that the night prayers are an excuse for the young girls to get out of parental protection, living them exposed to the sinful world of unprotected intercourse, which consequentially, leads to a generation of baby makers.
