A teachers and deputy principal have been charged at Murang'a Law Courts with defiling a minor.

According to the prosecution, Ndutumi Secondary School deputy principal, Samuel Ikonya, was the first one to defile the girl on Sunday, October 20.

The aggrieved girl went to report the deputy principal to her class teacher, who in turn defiled her.

The deputy school principal and the teacher, Kelvin Ngunjiri, were charged on Wednesday but they pleaded not guilty before Murang’a Chief Magistrate Margaret Wachira.

The duo pleaded with the court to release them on bail, vowing not to interfere with investigations.

"It will not be appropriate to have the two suspects released to go back to school where some of the witnesses are," said the prosecution.

The two suspects, however, said since the schools are closing for holidays soon and they will be residing in their respective homes.

Ikonya told the court that he lives in Zimmerman, Nairobi while Ngunjiri said he resides in Juja, Kiambu County.

The two suspects will remain in police custody until the magistrate gives a ruling on their bail application on October 28, 2019.
