A primary school teacher, Joseph Nduva Wambua, accosted while sexually assaulting a pupil at a swimming pool during a school tour has been arrested, as pursuit for a second suspect (also a teacher) indicted in the act heightens.
Wambua and his counterpart, Mike Kioko, both teachers at Step Up Zion Academy Nthongoni in Makueni’s Mtito Andei, Kenya, were spotted by a concerned female customer doing the indecent act.
Detectives learnt that the school had organized a tour for its 32 Kenyan Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) candidates to Tsavo Inn Hotel located in Mtito Andei, entrusting a few teachers with their care, among them Kioko and Nduva.
Ignorant of the school rules that encumbered intrusion of personal space between male teachers and female pupils, the suspects joined the pool where several kids were in it.
Keenly observing from her table, the customer noted that the said perverted teachers were fondling two 13-year-old girls in the false cover of the clear swimming pool.
According to a Police source, operatives swiftly responded to the lady’s phonecall, just as the two teachers were scampering into escape routes.
“ While Kioko managed to dodge the officers’ dragnet, Nduva was nabbed and placed in custody, pending his arraignment on Monday 22. Meanwhile, investigative interviewing is ongoing at the school, as manhunt for Kioko continues, ” the source said.
