Sossion sticks by his guns despite CID summon

02 February 2015, 17:58 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion says he is not afraid of prosecution over comments he made asking teachers not to go back to the north Eastern part of the country.

Sossion is on record as telling teachers not to travel back to the region as they are still not assured of their safety, a claim that has been met with anger by the government and local leaders.

Teachers have been camping at the KNUT offices in Nairobi awaiting direction.

The Criminal Investigations Department CID had last week asked Sossion to attend a summon to explain his comments and he agreed to Monday, arriving at the headquarters with a battalion of teachers in tandem.

Speaking after the summon, Sossion said that he would not back down on demands until teachers once again feel safe.

" Our demands are simple, teachers must be taken care of. The situation on the ground dictates that we need extra security. There is nothing sinister about what we are saying," he said.

According to sources that were privy to the meeting, the KNUT boss was put to task over his comments, something he did not refuse to answer to, stating that after the death of 24 of their colleagues last year, teachers were just asking for their rights.
