Maseno School board resigns in protest over sodomy scam

The Maseno School board of management on Monday resigned to protest the interdiction of former principal Paul Otula.

The members of the board have also rejected the appointment of Mr Andrew Buop on an interim basis, saying he has a tainted past.

Principal Paul Otula has been interdicted following claims that a Form One student was sodomised by senior students.

Education officials have been investigating claims by a 16-year-old student that he had been sodomised by seniors in the school.

According to the student, whose story caused public uproar in January, a school captain and two others had sexually molested him.

But the board, in their resignation letter, said officials of Ministry of Education and the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) had undermined them while carrying out investigation on the alleged sodomy.
