Primary school teacher defiles and impregnates a class eight pupil

A  primary  school teacher has been fired by the Teacher Service Commission (TSC) for allegedly defiling and impregnating a  class eight pupil at Kagungu Primary school in Mfangano Island Suba Sub-county four months ago.

The  accused who is identified as Lucas Rowa is alleged to have defiled and impregnated the 13 year old pupil on January 17,  2019 in the staffroom when other pupils were attending their evening prep.

Rowa  requested a transfer to Gwasi Primary school in Suba South Constituency after realizing his misconduct, arguing  that  he has been teaching a school within an Island for many years.

Confirming  the incident to KNA, the Homa-Bay County TSC Director, Grace  Amira said that the teacher was fired on Friday  last   week after their investigators visited the school and established that Rowa had canal knowledge with the minor.

Amira  said his office is compiling a report regarding the matter which is expected to be submitted to the TSC Nairobi for  further action.

She  added that the whereabouts of the accused have not been established since he went underground after committing the offence, while the learner who is a KCPE student is expected to continue with her studies until she delivers.

Charles  Mwangi, the Police Commander in Suba North confirmed that his office has received a report regarding this matter  and have launched a man hunt for the accused who is still in hiding.
