Teacher slapped with life imprisonment for defiling a minor
A primary school headteacher has been imprisoned for life after he was found guilty of defiling a 10-year-old girl in Kajiado, south of Nairobi.
The prosecution said they have proved the case beyond doubt.
The Headmaster of Great Elite Academy committed the offence in 2014. According to the court report, the victim was from his neighbourhood.
Following the ruling, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (ODPP) reassured the public of its commitment to clear the backlog of cases in courts.
"The ODPP is collaborating closely with criminal justice actors to ensure that the system's backlog of cases is cleared," reads a portion of statement it released.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
