Nairobi - A school board of management teacher in Nyandarua county has been dismissed over allegations of flirting with female students.
The teacher, name withheld, was ordered sacked and be paid his dues as investigations continue to verify the allegations.
Speaking Wednesday in Nyahururu town, Nyandarua North DEO Mr Job Njeru Ngare said that he instructed the principal from the school to lay off the teacher and pay him his dues after clearance, as he launched investigations.
Ngare said that though he had no credible information on the same, the reason as to why he ordered for the lay off is that the girl is underage and that she was found in the teacher’s house.
“Though I have no credible information to give about the matter because i received it from the members of the public, i personally ordered the teacher to be sacked simply because this is a school girl and that she was found in his house without his presence which made me suspect that they had been together,” he said.
The DEO said that members of the public locked up the girl in his house before alerting the area chief Mr John Kamondo who alerted the police.

Mr. Ngare further said that according to the school’s staff and the members of the public, the teacher have been found severally in compromising positions with girl students in laboratories and even outside the school compound.
The DEO said that the student’s mother is frustrating investigations as she is calling for the termination, saying her daughter is a truant child.
He pleaded with the members of the public to report wayward teachers who betray the trust bestowed on them by parents in the well being of the girl child’s future.
