A Kenyan primary school teacher at Tumaini Primary School in Mirangine sub-county, Nyandarua County, has been sentenced to life in prison for defiling a 9-year-old student, according to a report by Standardmedia.
Charles Ndung’u was found guilty of defiling the Standard One pupil. Resident Magistrate Eunice Kelly said the prosecution had substantiated the accused’s guilt.
The convict – who teaches Standard Seven and Eight pupils – is said to have defiled the girl at his home in Mirangine on July 27, 2014. “My brother and I were delivering vegetables to the teacher’s house.
My brother left the house and the teacher, who looked drunk, dragged me, took me to his room, undressed me, and defiled me. I screamed and a neighbour came to rescue me,” the victim said in her testimony.
The doctor who assessed the girl told the court that tests on the girl showed she had suffered injuries and bruises and also tested positive for a sexually transmitted disease. 📷: Standardmedia
