Nairobi - A high school teacher in Nairobi has been arrested for allegedly raping a form 1 student.
The incident took place at Nairobi's Highridge Secondary School last week and the student it is claimed was raped by a 26 year old teacher.
Gigiri OCPD Vitalis Otieno said that the teacher is in custody awaiting investigations.
