A teacher at Karoti Girls High School, Kirinyaga county, has been arrested after allegedly attacking his colleague with a panga.
Alfose Orina was slashed after getting too cosy with a fine lass at the school, who is said to be on teaching practise – and his love rival’s girlfriend.
“The two male teachers are in a love affair with one female teacher,” said Mwea East Police Commander, Daniel Kitavi.
As the injured teacher’s colleagues summoned for help, the suspect is said to have hang around the school compound until the police arrived.
“He will be charged with attempted murder,” Kitavi said. “The suspect is being held at Wang’uru Police Station. We have recovered the weapon he is said to have used to attack his colleague in the school compound.”
Orina is said to be in critical condition at a private hospital in Mwea.
John Kanga, the MCA of Wamumu Ward, where the school is located said, “teachers should provide good leadership and serve as perfect examples for students.”
