Kairau Takotohiwi Ngahau
A former teacher has admitted molesting two of his male students at Mount Maunganui College in the 1970s and into 1980.
Kairau Ngahau, 76, pleaded guilty to six charges through his lawyer Tony Balme in the Tauranga District Court yesterday.
That is, four representative charges of indecent assault against a boy aged 12-16, and one representative count of sodomy.
Ngahau also pleaded guilty to a further count of indecent assault against a second student, also aged between 12-16, when his offending took place.
All the offences were committed in the 1970s and into 1980.
The first complainant said Ngahau deliberately brushed up against him on multiple occasions during class.
The victim told police he began to realise this was a precursor to being regularly told to stay behind after class.
Ngahau would take the victim into a back room and sexually assault him.
Ngahau would place his hand over the victim's mouth to keep him quiet. The victim told police he recalled this happened at least four times.
