Teacher charged with attempted murder
A teacher said to have been involved in a love triangle with his female and male colleagues has been charged in court with attempted murder. By
Timothy Musembi Mutie who denied committing the offence appeared before the Wanguru Senior Resident Magistrate M.Kivuti yesterday.
Mutie denied that on March 3 at Karoti Girls High School, Mwea East Sub-County he unlawfuly attempted to murder his colleague Alphonse Orina Omwange by cutting him with a panga on the head and both hands .
The court ordered that Mutie who was unrepresented be realised on a bond of Sh 100,000 with a surety of same amount .
The magistrate further directed that Mutie’s criminal case be mentioned on March 17 before a hearing date could be set .
Meanwhile Omwenga was reported to be still recuperating at a private health care facility in Ngurubani town following the 11.30 Am ordeal on the material day .
It was claimed that on the material day Mutie stormed into the school staff room during the tea break while armed with a panga he had hidden in his coat .
He then sat inside the staff room where he found the victim marking some examination papers as his colleagues started to stream out after taking their tea.
He sat still until only the victim and another teacher were left in the room and without wasting time seized the opportunity and attacked Mutie who was caught off guard .
As he tried to defend himself from the assailant , Mutie sustained serious had and both hand injuries .
The screams from the victim brought learning at the densly populated school (1000 plus students ), to a stand still .
The attacker then fled from the scene , and jumped over the gate before he hid the weapon before stopping a boda boda which he directed the rider to take him to a nearby Chief’s camp at Kimbimbi market .
Mutie was then formerly arrested and driven to Wanguru ploice station and locked in until yesterday when he was charged with the serious offence.
The female trainee teacher said to have been involved in a love affair between the two male colleagues has since been ordered out of the school over the shame.
It was not clear if Kenyatta University where the woman was on her teaching practice would take her to another school to complete her internship.
The cute woman from the Embu community is said to have irresistible beauty which no man can afford not to try .
The three actors therefore logically makes the matter a real love triangle since three diverse communities are involved .
Mutie’s vehicle which he had left parked within the school compound has since been towed from the premises while he will spend the weekend in custody after he failed to raise the bond .
