A Maralal court will Tuesday determine whether a primary school teacher charged with defiling a 12 year old girl will be released on bail.
The accused, Dominic Bosire, a teacher at Milimani primary school denied the defilement charges when he appeared before Maralal Senior Resident Magistrate Abraham Gachie.
He has been charged with defiling the girl on unknown dates at Milimani primary school in Maralal town.
The accused faced an alternative charge of committing an indecent act with the minor.
The prosecution has applied for the accused to be remanded at Maralal Police Station until the complainant and her three witnesses have testified.
The prosecution said he might interfere with witnesses who were pupils at the school where he teaches.
Considering the seriousness of the case, the prosecution said, the accused might flee if released on bond.
However, the accused opposed the prosecution’s application for remanded saying he is expected to sit for examination at Kenyatta University.
The case will be heard on December 7, 2017 and mentioned on November 13.
