Alfayo was accused of defiling a Standard four pupil after he posted photos on his Facebook account bragging of engaging in sexual acts with the minor.
The accused appeared before Sotik Senior Resident Magistrate Bernard Omwansa where he pleaded not guilty to both charges and was released on a Ksh.100,000 bond or surety of a similar amount.
