The Ministry of Education is on the spot for delaying to intervene over defilement claims that surround a high school teacher in Nakuru North.

The middle-aged teacher is said to have sneaked a Form Three boarding student out of school before assaulting her at his house in June.

Sub-County Education director Joel Kaunda said on Friday that ministry officials met at the school on Thursday, but were yet to arbitrate minutes recorded by the school’s board of management on the investigation of the case.

The family of the victim, however, accused the school management of negligence in resolving the matter. The student was suspended and later expelled from school for allegedly sneaking out on the night of June 5.

EXHAUSTED

“Our daughter came home a day before schools went for half term. It was around 8 o’clock in the morning when she arrived. She looked tired and exhausted, something that ignited our curiosity to know what exactly had brought her home at such an unusual time when others were still in school,” narrated the girls’ mother, adding that she later took her back to school after the short break but she was suspended.
