The learners were away for some months when schools were closed due to Covid-19. Mutuku pleaded not guilty to all the counts and the court released him on a Sh200,000 bond. He could not raise the money and was taken to Makueni GK Remand Prison.

Nine witnesses who have so far testified told the court how the man had on several occasions tried in vain to defile students. Among the nine are three students, the school’s principal and school employees. Three witnesses, all police officers, testified against Mutuku on Wednesday. The case was heard in the Chambers since it involves minors.

The court was told how the man scaled two walls that surround the girls dormitory using a ladder. He then jumped over the first iron sheet wall, and made a hole through the second chain link fence and entered the girls’ dormitory through a window. The girls had complained of a “ghost” in a wig and ladies tracksuit that had attempted to sexually assault them at night.
