A primary school teacher has been charged with defiling his pupil at the Kibera Law Courts.

Silas Omoro Okwaro, 34, is accused defiling the minor who is not pregnant on diverse dates between June and October last year contrary to sexual offences Act of 2006.

The suspect pleaded guilty to the charges then made a U – turn and denied after he was informed of the seriousness of the offence.

He was handed an alternative charge of committing an indecent act with the child where he is accused of touching her private parts which he also denied.

Okwaro is accused of defiling the minor inside a classroom at Shamma Children’s Centre in Kibera, Nairobi.

He is also accused of having intercourse with child at his home in Kibera where she would visit him for conjugal escapades. Okwaro is the minor’s class teacher and teaches her mathematics.

The teacher started a relationship with the minor in June and started sleeping with her after she agreed to have a relationship with him.

The minor was discovered to be pregnant after fainting in school last month owing to suspected pregnancy complications.

She was taken to a hospital by her parents where the pregnancy test turned positive.

She is five months pregnant. Okwaro denied the charges before senior principal magistrate Esther Bhoke. He was released on a Sh300,000 bond with a surety of a similar amount.

The case will be mentioned on February 22 for a pre-trial.
