The teachers said they would wait for TSC's disciplinary process, claiming the case filed by their union would prolong their agony in court.
Unpaid salariesThis came even as it emerged that teachers who missed the training had not been paid for two months now. “The teachers are apprehensive that the said Judicial Review proceedings and or determination may take long and go beyond December 2019, and hence prolonging their financial suffering,” they argued. Benard Omondi Ngesa filed an affidavit to support the application to have the teachers' names expunged from the case, saying he did not authorise his name to be included in the list.
