Kenyan police said on Thursday that they had arrested six teachers over a viral video of primary school pupils simulating sex as punishment in an incident that caused uproar.
The footage showed four boys in school uniform simulating sexual acts under a tree in the school compound as the teachers watched.
The six are heard chatting in the background of the 29-second clip and bursting into laughter as one shirtless child wipes tears from his face.
Police said the clip "exposing school pupils in an indecent act" was recorded in Nyamache, a rural town, some 300 kilometres from the capital Nairobi.
Six teachers -- five women and a man -- have been arrested and "are assisting in investigation", police said.
Education Minister Ezekiel Machogu said the teachers will face disciplinary action and would be dismissed if found guilty.
According to Kenya's sexual offences act, a person found guilty of compelling another to engage in an indecent act faces a jail term of not less than five years.
