Girl, 17 Never Been to School Since Year 2000

Nyeri,   March 17th 2011 –A man was Friday arraigned before a Nyeri court charged with forsaking and denying his children the right to education.

Francis Wachira was accused that since the year 2000 to date he has never taken his two kids Pauline Wachira, 17, and Jacob Wachira, 14, to school.

Wachira pleaded guilty to the charges before the Nyeri resident Magistrate Joan Wabilyanga.

Wabilyanga had earlier issued a warrant of arrest for the accused after he failed to appear in court but lifted it later after he availed himself.

The accused will appear again in court after the prosecution said more charges are likely to be preferred against him.
