A teacher at a school in Mukuru kwa Njenga in Nairobi on Wednesday, March 22, admitted to defiling one of his students aged 15.
The accused, Cedrick Wawire Egese, abused the minor on diverse dates in March this year.
“The accused who is a teacher admitted having defiled the 15-year-old child on diverse dates in March 2023, at Mukuru kwa Njenga,” the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) said in a statement.
During mitigation, the teacher told the court that the girl made advances on him first by sending love letters.
In her ruling, Makadara Principal Magistrate Hon. Hellen Onkwani pointed out the seriousness of the offence saying a ‘deterrent sentence was necessary.’
She sentenced Wawire to 20 years in prison.
