Teacher arrested for raping 9 pupils

27 March 2013, 17:48 Cheruo Levi Cheptora

A teacher, simply known as Okedi alias ‘Akuku danger’ will be arraigned in court on April 23rd to answer to charges of raping minors.

It is alleged that Mwalimu Okedi Mali Philip, while discharging his duties in Mount Elgon RC Primary School and currently at Machewa Primary School, raped his 9 female pupils.

The latest casualty was a nine year old girl who is a pupil at Mountain View Academy in Trans Nzoia County.

The total number of his victims had clocked a record nine in less than a quarter of a year.

Speaking to the media, the parents of the nine year old victim claimed that Mwalimu had coerced them into telling half baked truths with promises of cash and a half an acre of land.

They further claimed that there were plots by the area Administration Officers (who arrested the culprit) and the School Head of Machewa Primary School where Mwalimu is serving as a deputy head teacher, to sweep the ultimate truth under the carpet.

Credible sources informed the media that Mwalimu was finally apprehended after interventions from Children’s Rights Groups.
