According to the teenager, whose parents were said to have decided to transfer her to a day school near their home, she reported the incident to the principal through the school matron, who agreed to take her to hospital hours later after contacting her parents. The school's principal, Jane Wachira, yesterday declined to speak about the incident. "I have no version about this incident and I am not giving one," she said when contacted on the telephone. On Monday, detectives from the Kariene Police Station took the student to the Githongo sub-county hospital. The case was referred to the Meru hospital. The school issued the girl's parent a post-rape form that said the student "had consensual sex with her female friend using a sex toy during the midterm break". Central Imenti police boss Elijah Maina said the claims were being investigated.
