One teacher in Kitui has pleaded with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to reinstate him after his dismissal as a teacher. Mr Nicholas Kilonzo says that he was dismissed from the public service over alleged abuse of his student in 2019. Mr Kilonzo had been accused of having an affair with the student.

However, Mr Kilonzo says that the student made later confessions saying that she lied in order to put him in trouble. The student reportedly retracted the accusations against him saying that she regrets letting her own teacher suffer after the false accusations. The student who has now completed her studies says that she is ready to help him get back his job.

According to the student, the accusations made against Mr Kilonzo were a ploy betweeb her and the school head then in order to ruin his life. Mr Kilonzo who is a qualified English and Literature teacher says that at the time of the incident, he was not in good terms with the school principal of the school in which he was teaching.

Nicholas says he has two children and a wife who look up to him. "I have a family who depend on me and destroying my career earns nobody nothing good," said the teacher. Kilonzo added that his woes began hardly a month after asking for a transfer from the school.

Mr Kilonzo now wants the TSC to carry out their own investigations to ascertain his claims and those made by the student in question.
