A teacher who was arrested in Murang’a for allegedly trying to solicit sex from another man has denied committing the offence.

Mr Godfrey Mburu Waithera is said to have sent explicit messages to a journalist, confessing his love for him.

Mr Mburu also faces four charges of improper use of a telephone.


The 20-year-old was released on a Sh200,000 bond or a surety of the same amount.

He was arrested in Gatanga after he agreed to meet the journalist, who was in the company of plainclothes police officers, who had set a trap for him.

Mr Mburu, who is said to be a youth leader at the Githioro Presbyterian Church of East Africa (PCEA) church, said he was introduced to the vice last year by a man whom he only identified as Kuria.

The case was fixed for hearing on March 7. It will be mentioned on February 23.
