Police order Moi Girls’ male teachers and workers to take DNA tests in rape probe

Published

on

Police have ordered five male teachers and subordinate staff at Moi Girls High School, Nairobi, to take DNA tests in connection with Saturday’s raping of a rape of students.

The five are among those suspected to have raped a Form two girl on Saturday night but some reports are putting the number of victims at three.

The DNA samples will either place them at the scene of the crime or absolve them. Usually, DNA tests in cases of sexual assault are an important tool for achieving justice for the survivors.

This means that they can be used to accurately identify a perpetrator, similar to the use of fingerprints. DNA can be collected from blood, saliva, hair, sweat, urine, skin tissue and semen.

This also comes as old girls of the institution and children’s rights activists stage protests outside the school gate over the atrocious act that has angered parents and Kenyans alike.

The demonstrating alumni are clad in the school uniform to display solidarity with the current students.  They are demanding answers from the school’s management on the safety of their children with many still asking themselves how a stranger accessed a school and raped some girls in the dead of night.

Council of Governors Chair Josphat Nanok has strongly condemned the alleged rape incident while empathising with the parents and students of the institution. “We call upon the government to tackle the issue with the seriousness it deserves and assure parents countrywide of the security of their children,” Nanok said. Moi Girls High School has since been closed for a week to allow time for investigations by detectives from Kilimani Police Station and Nairobi County Police Headquarters.

It however remains largely unclear whether the act took place at 12 midnight or 5.00am Saturday morning.

Published

on

A bishop accused of defiling three girls he was living with at an orphanage, infecting one of them with HIV has now sentenced to 75 years in prison.



Kisumu Resident Magistrate Pauline Mbulika found him guilty of three counts of defilement and deliberate transmission of HIV.

Joseph Agutu had promised to sponsor the minors before he started defiling them.

Agutu who hid his face from the cameras as police escorted him out of the solitary cell to Kodiaga Maximum Prison, had maintained his innocence throughout the proceedings.

He was charged with committing the crime against the girls between April and July 2016. One of the girls is aged 14 while two are 15 years old.

The court heard that the accused intentionally committed the crime and deliberately infected one of the minors with HIV.

The accused also reportedly touched the girls inappropriately on various dates between April and July 12, 2016. In addition, Agutu also faced an alternative charge of touching the private parts of the minors.

Four prosecution witnesses pointed an accusing finger to the Bishop with the minors recounting the sexual encounters that the man subjected them to.

One of the minors who is an orphan painfully narrated to the court how the bishop lured her and her grandmother to the trap.

“My grandmother brought me to him and he promised to sponsor my education. My grandmother went back home and left me with him at the church,” said the minor.

After a while, she told the court, the bishop defiled her and called the other girl and defiled them too as she slept on the floor. She said they were crying throughout the ordeal.

The court heard that the following morning the bishop refused to allow them to go to school but instead ordered them to go to church.
