DPP orders arrest and prosecution of a teacher who defiled a Form three student

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has ordered arrest of a secondary school teacher accused of defilement.

The 25-year-old teacher, who is at large, is said to have sneaked the Form Three student out of school before defiling her.

Bahati sub-county police boss Jacinta Wangeci said: "We are still looking for the teacher, who has since been suspended, to face defilement charges."

The police had written to the DPP for advice over the case that was reported at Bondeni Police Station on June 27.

The teacher recorded a statement with the police after the minor's parents reported the attack before he disappeared.

And yesterday, the girl's mother accused the school management of laxity and bias in handling the matter.

She said the management expelled her daughter for sneaking out of school on June 5.

"Our efforts to have her allowed back to school have been fruitless. It is unfortunate that she is missing lessons yet she will sit the same exams with the rest of her colleagues," she said.

She added: "All I want is justice for my daughter. The teachers who defiled her should be punished and the school should allow her back to class."

Our efforts to seek a comment from the school's managers have been fruitless as they refused to speak to the media.

Area education director Joel Kaunda said officials from the Ministry of Education will soon meet the school's management to resolve the matter.

“Quality assurance officers have been conducting investigations into the claims. What is left is for us to meet the management to resolve the matter,” said Kaunda.
