Teacher flees after defiling KCPE candidate

21 October 2015, 12:16 Joseph Njung'eh

Murang'a - Police in Gatanga sub-County, Murang’a County have launched a manhunt for a primary school teacher who allegedly defiled a Class Eight pupil who is expected to sit her KCPE examinations this year.

The 35-year-old teacher who was employed by the school’s Board of Management is said to have fled when he was summoned by the school board.

According to area Chief, Kepha Waweru, the teacher allegedly committed the heinous act to the minor on October 10 at the school’s staffroom.

Waweru said that some teachers noticed the 14-year-old girl had difficulties in walking prompting them to find out what was the problem.

“The child was forced to say what happened since she had been threatened by the teacher but when the suspect was summoned by the school administration he just fled,” he explained.

He said that when the teacher was summoned to head teacher’s office, he walked out of the room pretending to answer to a call after which he fled and switched off his mobile phone.

The administrator said the child was taken to hospital where she received treatment as the Head teacher reported the matter to police, adding that efforts to trace him were ongoing.
