Teachers in court for chaos at training in Kibwezi

Four Kibwezi Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) officials have been charged before a Makindu law court for causing a public disturbance.  

Branch deputy secretary Josphat Musyoki, Christopher Kitua (chairman)  James Mutua (Machinery representative)and Peter Kitonyi (Mtito Andei region representative)  were arrested on Friday before securing a Sh10,000 police bond.

The court heard that the four stormed training centres in Kyumani Primary School within Masongaleni ward, Machinery in Thange ward, Mtito-Andei and Kithingiisyo both in the lower Kibwezi sub-county and disrupted a teachers training exercise on April 23,2019.

 Appearing before Senior Resident magistrate Damaris Karani, the four pleaded not guilty and were released on a Sh100,000 bond and a surety of similar amount or an alternative cash bail of Sh15,000.

The four were represented by  Makueni MP Daniel Kitonga Maanzo.

The officials were warned against further disturbing the teachers' training.

Last week, three other Knut leaders were arraigned in the same court over the training disruption.

 They will appear in court on May 14 for pre-trial.
