A Kajiado Court has sentenced a headteacher to life imprisonment for defiling a 10-year-old girl from his neighbourhood.
The accused, a headmaster of Great Elite Academy located in Kitengela, appeared before the court on Tuesday.
According to a report from the Director of Public Prosecution, the prosecution led by Counsel, Gladys Chepngeno proved the case beyond reasonable doubt.
During the ruling of the case which has been in court for eight years, the headteacher was found guilty of charges levelled against him and slapped with life imprisonment.
While reassuring the public of his commitment to clear the backlog of cases in the judicial system, the DPP vowed to work closely with all stakeholders.
“ODPP is working closely with criminal justice actors to ensure that they clear backlog of cases in the system,” read the statement.
