Teacher in court over TSC boss death claim
A teacher was yesterday charged with cyber bullying Teachers Service Commission (TSC) Secretary Nancy Macharia.
Jeremiah Mwawuganga, who appeared before Chief Magistrate Susan Shitubi at the Milimani Law Courts, denied two charges of publishing false information alleging that the TSC boss was dead.
The accused person is alleged to have posted the false information on January 16, 2022 on TSC’s Facebook page.
The prosecution told the court that the accused posted the remarks knowing it to be false and calculated to cause fear and panic to Macharia and her family.
He was also charged with a second count of publishing false information contrary to the Computer Misuse and Cybercrime Act.
Through his lawyer Ruth Tanui, the teacher asked for lenient bail terms saying he was the sole breadwinner to his family and has been cooperating with investigators.
He was released on a bond of Sh650,000 or a Sh100,000 cash bail.
