The CID has summoned Knut Secretary General Wilson Sossion for allegedly inciting North Eastern teachers to boycott duty over insecurity.

Sossion told the Star on phone Wednesday that he was still deliberating over the summon.

In a post on Twitter, he said that North Eastern pupils deserve quality education from secure teachers.

He claimed that the teachers have been sleeping in his boardroom adding that “their plight is beyond political rhetoric”.

In a KTN interview on Tuesday night, Sossion advised them to only return to work when the government addresses the security concerns.

He accused North Eastern leaders of not supporting teachers “risking their lives for their children”.

North Eastern Knut national executive council member Ali Abdi Hussein however said that security has been restored in the area.

The Teachers Service Commission gave teachers up to February 2 to return to work or face disciplinary action.

About 2,000 teachers from North Eastern said they will only go back if their security is guaranteed.

They dared the government to fire them, saying their safety comes first.

The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers also urged the teachers not to report to work.

Secretary general Akello Misori asked the TSC to post them to other schools pending instructions from security chiefs.
