KNUT officials charged for disrupting teachers training on new curriculum

Kenya National Union of teachers officials are in court for accusations of trying to disrupt training of teachers on the new education curriculum.

Four officials – three in Kibwezi and one in Kakamega, have bee charged separately for upsetting public order but those they were with are said to have escaped arrest.

In Kibwezi, the three officials were released on a cash bail of KSh20,000 each, pending the hearing of their case.

Gabriel Kisilu (Kibwezi branch secretary), Miriam Mwania (treasurer) and Henry Kivuva denied disrupting the training at Isunguluni Primary school.

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha launched the training on the competency-based curriculum targeting 90,000 teachers, against KNUT boss Wilson Sossion’s call for further stakeholder engagememt before the CBC is rolled out.

Contrary to Sossion’s calls for boycott, the ministry of education reported impressive turnout of teachers across the country.
