Teacher sentenced to 90 years for sexually assaulting 9 boys

17 June 2016, 11:59

Murang'a - A primary school teacher in Murang’a County has been sentenced to 90 years in prison for sexually assaulting 9 male pupils.

John Gichia Mugi allegedly committed the crime between January and May 2014, only two terms after joining the school.

He was serving as the boys’ boarding master.

Mugi’s indecent acts were exposed after the boys requested to go home following a parents’ meeting at the school.

However, the school head tried to cover up the case and was as a result struck off the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) roll, Daily Nation reports.

The boys who are aged between 13 and 16 told court that the teacher touched their private parts and kissed them as they went to bed after evening studies.

The 23-year-old teacher was sentenced to 10 nine years for each assault, Standard reports, and will thus be released when he is 113-years-old.
