In news from Kenya, a 29-year-old man from Wote in Makueni County was arraigned on Wednesday, March 10 for sexually harassing a minor.

Jackson Keli Mutuku is accused of sneaking into Mwaani Girls’ High School, jumping through a dormitory window and sexually harassing a Form Four student. The incident happened on October 19, 2020, after some students resumed studies following a 7-month break due to COVID-19 pandemic.

Mutuku denied the accusation, prompting the Prosecution to line up nine witnesses against him. The witnesses include students and workers at Mwaani Girls’ High School and police officers.

An investigating officer assigned the case, Robin Katambani, told the Makueni Law Courts that Mutuku accessed the school compound after cutting a wire fence and jumping through an open dormitory window.

The suspect, who found one girl in the dormitory, is alleged to have forcefully fondled the learner, prompting her to raise the alarm.

Other students rushed to the dormitory, but the suspect managed to escape.

Later, surveillance cameras mounted in and outside the dormitory were reviewed. The videos identified Mutuku, whose home neighbours the school, as the person who sneaked into the dormitory on October 19, 2020 night.

Police were informed about the incident, leading to the suspect’s arrest.

Makueni magistrate, George Sagelo, directed that the suspect be brought back to court on March 24, 2021, when a police officer who reviewed the CCTV recordings will testify.
