Police in Laikipia are hunting for a male teacher who allegedly defiled a Class Eight pupil at Slopes View Academy in Naro Moru on Saturday.

The rape allegedly took place in the wee hours of June 2, when the pupil was preparing to go for morning preps.

The teacher-on-duty, who met the minor on her way to the classroom, reportedly asked her to return to the dormitory, where he followed and allegedly raped her.

The girl, however, did not report the incident until Sunday, when teachers called her mother because the girl was weeping uncontrollably.

In the presence of her mother and teachers, the girl narrated how she was defiled by the suspect.

The suspect, who was in the staff room at the time, upon learning that the minor had spilled the beans, fled the school by jumping over the school fence.

“We have recorded a statement with the police. What I want is justice for my daughter. May the teacher be arrested and charged in court,” said the girl’s mother.

The pupil was rushed to hospital, where pregnancy and STI tests ran on her turned negative. She had already showered by the time she was taken to hospital; and as a result, there was no key evidence.

Confirming the incident, Narumoru police boss Job Lesikinwa said police have, however, launched a manhunt for the suspect.

Slopes View Academy head teacher Elizabeth Wamuyu Muthui said until Sunday, she wasn’t aware of the incident.

She has pledged to cooperate with police as they investigate the incident.
