A 45-Year-old primary school teacher has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for defiling a 13-year-old student in 2016.

While passing the sentence, Senior principal magistrate David Ndugi said it was the minimum sentence for such an offence as provided by the law.

Outside the courts before the court session started 

“The accused is a teacher but he defiled a child. The rights of his children are not superior to that of the child he defiled. I hereby sentenced him to 20 years in prison as provided by law,” the magistrate ruled.

 Mr Fredrick Mwangi Wango, a teacher at Moi Primary School was accused of defiling the standard six pupil on March 2016 at Mathare Estate in  Nairobi county, The complainant who was too drunk left her under the care of Mwangi who is a married man with two children for half a year.The girl was then admitted to Moi Primary School in standard six but would leave school to go to Mwangi’s house.

“She was taken to two different schools but would always go back to Mwangi’s house making us suspicious,” part of the police report read.

More speculations prompted an interrogation by gender and children desk officers to establish whether there was any relationship between her and Mwangi but she denied it.

The officers sought help from police officers who escorted the girl to the hospital for check-up. She was later subjected to vigorous counselling before opening up. She stated that Mwangi had been sexually violating her since she started living with him in his house, threatening her not to disclose.
