A secondary school principal has been interdicted by Teacher Service Commission because of harassing a student sexually.
The accused principal heads a school in Mwala sub-county.
According to the source, probe into the matter started last month after a form four female student reported the case while on a live morning show radio.
The student had reported that the accused principal had resorted to continually intimidate her after she declined to bow to overwhelming love requests from him.
Machakos County TSC Director David Mukui said the principal was given a letter of interdiction on September 24, following the recommendations of a team probing numerous allegations against him.
“We followed all the procedures and we were able to trace the student and her parents. A team was also dispatched to investigate the matter in the school. Out of the report, the recommendations were that the principal had a case to answer,” said Mukui.
Mr.Mukui further said the teacher was interdicted in accordance to the teachers’ code of regulations and based on evidence of the offenses listed.
The accused principal was directed to hand over the running of the institution to the deputy principal who now becomes the acting principal
