KNUT boss Sossion will not heed CID summon

28 January 2015, 16:56 William Korir

Nairobi - Kenya National Union of Teachers KNUT Secretary Wilson Sossion says he will not heed a CID summon over the refusal by teachers to return to the volatile North Eastern region.

The KNUT boss was summoned to appear before the CID to answer to his order to teachers not to return to Mandera in the volatile Northern part of the country.

Sossion told teachers not to return to Mandera until several things are looked at, including security and extra perks to help them compensate for their working conditions and danger.

The order came following the killing of 24 teachers by Al Shabaab militants late last year in Mandera.

Sossion has been accused by Mandera leaders of sabotage and despite the CID summon, says he will not explain anything to anyone until teachers are looked after.

" I will not heed any summon. They have no right to call me until they fix the issues teachers have," he told News24 Wednesday.

" The fact is that teachers are treated badly, are not paid any allowances and the security is not there. It is only teachers that suffer in Kenya. Unless something is done and quickly, they should stay home," he added.

He also said that he was not afraid of avoiding the CID summons.

" I am not at all afraid of missing the summon. I protect the interests of teachers. That is my job and no one will make me fearful over a job I love doing, he added.

Leaders from the region have accused Sossion and KNUT of sabotage, claiming that other public servants such as doctors had resumed duty.
