Madrassa teacher who murdered pupil denied bail

14 July 2016, 21:03

Nairobi- A Madrassa teacher in Kakamega accused of murdered his 9 year-old student by hitting him with a blunt object on head was paraded in court.

Slim Abdul Rajab pleaded not guilty to the charge before Kakamega high court yesterday.

It is alleged that on the September 13 last year at Karim Mosque in Kakamega central unlawfully murdered Deka Ibrahim.

Mr. Rajab a middle aged man fled after committing the offense before he was apprehended by police in Kimilili town in his hide out on May 12 this year.

State prosecution counsel asked that Rajab be denied bail for he could yet again disappear.

"The accused is a flight risk given that when he allegedly committed the offense he went at large until police arrested him in his hideout and preferred on him charges. I fear that when he is let free on bond he may disappear and jeopardize the course of justice," said the court prosecutor as he applied for objection of bail.

The court granted the prosecution its prayer to deny the accused bail and set hearing of the case to August 2016.

On the material day of murder the child was taken to Kakamega general hospital where he passed on the 14th of the September 2015 while undergoing treatment.

Deka was at Class One level in the Madrassa when the offense happened.
