A male teacher who was arrested in Murang’a County for allegedly trying to solicit sex from another man has been charged.
Mr Godfrey Mburu Waithera is said to have sent explicit messages to a male journalist confessing his love for him.
Mr Mburu was charged with four counts of improper use of a phone.
The 20-year-old denied the charges and was released on a Sh200,000 bond or a surety of the same amount.
Mr Mburu was arrested in Gatanga after he agreed to meet the journalist, who was in the company of plain-clothes officers who had set a trap for him.
Mr Mburu, who is said to be a youth leader at Githioro PCEA church, said he was introduced to homosexuality last year by a man that he identified only as Kuria.
The matter was fixed for a hearing on March 7.
