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.
