Peterhouse teacher fondles Form 4 pupil, promises her some s_ex ‘next year’
A 33-year-old Peterhouse school teacher has been dragged to court in a sex assault storm with a Form 4 pupil at the school after allegations surfaced that he fondled the student and forced her to touch his manhood.
The teacher allegedly told the complainant that he was going to have sexual intercourse with her next year when she will be in Form Five.
The teacher’s name which has been withheld to protect the identity of the victim is reported to have fondled the form four student twice on different occasions without her consent.
The State led by Mr Augustine Mugari told the court that sometime in August last year at around 11am, the complainant and her cousin went to Peterhouse boys IT Lab to study, but found the door locked.
She then proceeded to the accused person’s office to collect the keys and when she entered, the accused told her that she had a beautiful body.
He allegedly drew closer to her and fondled her breasts and hips.
The complainant told the accused person to stop it, but instead he forcefully kissed her on the lips.
The complainant then got out of the office and went to the lab, but did not tell anyone.
On the second count, on an unknown date in August last year, the complainant was in the lab studying with her cousin when she failed to print some things and went to the accused’s office for assistance.
When she entered the office, the accused complemented her on her dressing and told her to turn around, but she refused.
He allegedly stood up from where he was seated and went to where the complainant was standing, got hold of her shoulders, forced her to turn around and closed the door.
He then got behind the complainant and started fondling her breasts before forcing her to touch his manhood.
The complainant threatened to scream, but the accused was not moved.
The accused only stopped fondling the pupil when they heard a knock on the door.
He then told the complainant that he was going to have sexual intercourse with her next year when she will be in Form Five.
The teacher then told the complainant not to disclose the matter to anyone because he was afraid of losing his job.
The matter came to light on January 27 this year when the complainant told her mother (name withheld) who then went and made a report to Peterhouse Boys High School where it was deliberated, leading to school authorities making a report to the police. — Read original story in The Herald
