A primary school teacher has been interdicted on allegation of defiling a 14-year-old pupil.

The incident reportedly happened at Waso Primary School last week after other KCPE candidates had left for their homes shortly after completing their exams.

Isiolo Teachers Service Commission director Alex Cheruiyot, while confirming the incident, said the teacher only identified as Kinoti had been temporarily suspended as investigations into the matter continue.

“We have already served him (teacher) with an interdiction letter,” Mr Cheruiyot told the Nation on phone.

The victim’s family earlier this week blamed police for releasing the suspect after he was arrested on Friday.

“We are wondering why the suspect was released the same day he was arrested and worry that we may not get justice,” the girl’s mother said.
