Fredrick Mungai Njenga on Wednesday appeared at the Shanzu Law Courts on Wednesday but did not take plea after the court faulted the charge sheet.

“According to law it is not “indecent act” since mouth is not a genital organ. Get a proper charge,” Senior Resident Magistrate Yusuf Shikanda told the Prosecution.

He ordered that the charge sheet be written afresh and the suspect to reappear in court on July 23 for plea taking.

In the case, Njenga is accused of forcing the class 8 pupil to lick his private parts after locking him inside his car.
