Murang'a - The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) Murang’a County branch is investigating allegations that a teacher from a local school has sexually molested 12 male pupils.
The county TSC director, Ibrahim Aden, said his office had sent a delegation to unearth the truth about claims that a teacher employed by Parents and Teachers’ Association at Muthiria boarding primary school had sexually assaulted minors.
On Friday last week, a section of parents who visited the school for an academic day complained that their children had been sodomized by a 21-year-old teacher.
Reports claimed that a class eight pupil complained to his mother that the teacher had been touching their private parts when they go to their dormitories to sleep.
The report agitated the parents and caused chaos at the school prompting the accused teacher to flee from the school for safety as the headteacher declined to talk to the media.

Murang’a North KNUT branch executive secretary, Rosaline Kamina said the affected pupils had recorded statements and were taken to Muriranjas hospital for medical checkup.
“The statements that the pupils have recorded indicate that the teacher didn’t molest any child but the pupils confirmed that he used to touch their private parts, which amounts to sexual harassment,” said Kamina.
She added that the medical report showed the pupils were not molested but three boys were found with some infections caused by unhygienic conditions and were treated.
Kamina warned teachers to adhere to professional ethics, saying such cases could greatly affect the performance of the school which is known to have been doing well.
