Police are pursuing Deputy Head Teacher of Kapsoya Primary School, Eldoret following allegations of rape of a 14-year-old schoolgirl.
Uasin Gishu County Commissioner Abdi Hassan ordered the arrest of the Deputy Head Teacher Mr Kipchumba Kiptoo suspected of raping the 14 year-old girl.
The teacher who has reportedly fled into hiding is alleged to have lured the girl into his car and driven to the neighboring Elgeyo Marakwet County where he allegedly performed the heinous act.
“We have received information from parents at the school and launched investigations on Kipchumba Kiptoo who is said to have fled,” the County Commissioner said on Friday.
Women legislators led by Uasin Gishu Women Rep Gladys Boss Shollei have condemned the act and demanded for quick action.
Nominated MCAs Belinda and Irine Malel have also called on the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to deregister the deputy teacher if he is found guilty of the crime.
