Mr Joseph Nduva Wambua & his counterpart Mike Kioko, both teachers at Step Up Zion Academy Nthongoni in Makueni’s Mtito Andei, were spotted by a concerned female customer doing the indecent act.
Detectives learnt that the school had organized a tour for its 32 KCPE candidates to Tsavo Inn Hotel located in Mtito Andei, entrusting a few teachers with their care, among them Kioko & Nduva.”” Said DCI
Ignorant of personal space the teachers joined the students and one Mr. Joseph Nduva was arrested as the police arrived with his accomplice managing to escape the scene.
“Ignorant of the school rules that encumbered intrusion of personal space between male teachers & female pupils, the suspects joined the pool where several kids had taken over the aquatic kingdom.
Keenly observing from her table, the customer noted that the said perverted teachers were fondling two 13-yr-old girls in the false cover of the clear swimming pool.
Swiftly responding to the lady’s call, detectives rushed to the scene just as the two teachers were scampering into escape routes.
While Kioko managed to dodge the officers’ dragnet, Nduva was nabbed & placed in custody, pending his arraignment on Monday 22. Meanwhile, investigative interviewing is ongoing at the school, as manhunt for Kioko continues.” Said DCI
