Five more male teachers ordered to give DNA samples in Moi Girls rape probe

Investigations into an alleged rape incident at Moi Girls School in Nairobi have gathered momentum with eight suspects under detectives’ spotlight.

On Monday, five more male teachers and two subordinate staff were ordered to give DNA samples to investigators.

On Sunday, detectives ordered a male teacher to take the test in connection with the rape that allegedly happened on Saturday night.

The man, whose identity the Nation is not revealing yet for legal reasons, is suspected to have, jointly with others, raped the girl inside her dormitory.

The DNA tests will either place the eight suspects at the scene of crime or exonerate them.

Such tests are important in determining sexual violence cases as they allow forensic experts to compare the profile of a suspect against the evidence of bodily fluids found on the victim, and therefore, carry more weight in court than verbal submissions.
