A primary school teacher has been fired by the Teacher Service Commission for allegedly defiling and impregnating a Class Eight pupil at Kagungu Primary School in Mfangano Island Suba Subcounty four months ago.
The accused, identified as Lucas Rowa is alleged to have defiled and impregnated the 13-year-old pupil on January 17 2019 in the staffroom when other pupils were attending their evening prep.
Rowa requested a transfer to Gwasi Primary School in Suba South constituency after realising his misconduct, arguing that he has been teaching at school within an island for many years.
Confirming the incident, the Homa-Bay county TSC director Grace Amira said that the teacher was fired on Friday last week after their investigators visited the school and established that Rowa had canal knowledge with the minor.
Amira said his office is compiling a report regarding the matter which is expected to be submitted to the TSC Nairobi for further action.
She added that the whereabouts of the accused have not been established since he went underground after committing the offence, while the learner who is a KCPE student is expected to continue with her schooling.
