A high school in Nairobi has been slapped with 20-year-jail term for being found guilty of defiling a standard six pupil.
Senior Principal Magistrate David Ndungi found Fredrick Mwangi Wango guilty of committing the offence. After the ruling, the 45-year-old father of two caused drama in court collapsing in the process.
First aid was administered to him and he was allowed to sit while Justice Ndungi read the rest of the verdict.
According to the prosecution side, the teacher is said to have sneaked out of school at around 10:00 am and returned home while his wife and children were away.
It is at this time that molested the young girl. Ndungi agreed with the testament of the young girl, who had recounted her sexual encounters with the teacher between 2015 and 2016.
“The girl could not remember the number of times the accused defiled her. He threatened her with dire consequences should she disclose the illicit and illegal affair,” Justice Ndungi said.
