One school, one year, more than 50 pregnant girls | Poverty and Teen Parents
Anglican Bishop Emeritus Peter Njenga who holds the record of the longest serving provost at the All Saints Cathedral has been described as ‘The Iron Bishop’ with nine lives in his book set to be launched on Thursday evening at the cathedral. The retired bishop is best remembered for housing the 18 women who championed the release of political prisoners movement as they camped at the all saints cathedral for 11 straight months until government released their sons and husbands from detention. Apart from his run-ins with the government, the retired bishop always speaks of betrayal by the very church he served with zeal and zest, his first wife dying by suicide at the cathedral, his near quitting church service as a result of the government accusing him of killing his wife and setting up an inquest in 1990 which is still in court 33 years later.

A report by the World Health Organization (WHO) has ranked Kenya fifth among the African countries with elevated depression cases and adds that more than 700,000 people die due to suicide every year.
Further research shows that one in ten men experience depression or anxiety but less than half will receive treatment.NTV's Susan Grace sat down with two men and explored the sensitive subject of why men suffer in silence.
One of those men, Samuel Sijenyi, a youth worker and an assistant pastor started his preaching journey when he was 19, back in 2011.
His 12-year journey in the ministry has seen him work for different churches and when the pressure became too much to bear and felt his body shutting down, he left. It has been eight months since he left ministry and he says that he has sunk deeper into a depressive state,He adds that no one wants to be around him and that caused him to self-isolate and not seek help; suffering in silence. 30-year-old Shem Gichimu who served in the church and mentored youths struggled with his mental health from a very tender age of 12. Frustrated by family and feeling unappreciated, he unsuccessfully tried running away from home but one morning when everyone had left for work, he attempted to take his own life. Fortunately, some family members came to his rescue. He once again attempted suicide when he was 18 following a break up that took a toll on him. This is Battles In my Mind: Men of God.
