Kenyatta-family owned school on the spot after long-serving teacher was discovered to be a rapist

The posh school charges up to Sh2.9 million per year

According to the Standard, Peponi - which is owned by President Uhuru Kenyatta's family - last week issued regret letters to parents following the conviction of Peter Toner.

Toner was jailed by a UK court last week for child sex abuse crimes committed in the 1980s, but which escaped background checks by the school that hired him to teach between 2000 and 2013.

The 60-year old teacher was found to have preyed on boys aged between nine and 12 years, filming them as they strip-teased. He would also teach pupils how to masturbate and measured their private parts.Peponi was quick to reassure parents at the school that it had carried out a thorough background check against the convicted teacher.

“We have recently been informed that Mr Peter Toner (who was a teacher at this school between 2000 and 2013) has been convicted of offences committed at another preparatory school in the UK in the 1980s, following his arrest in 2015.”

“Our records indicate that appropriate checks were made prior to Mr Toner’s appointment and safeguarding checks continued to be made during his employment as is the case of every member of staff,” read the email sent to parents and guardians who have children at Peponi by head teacher Robert Blake.
