Knut official accuses Sossion of sabotage and asks him to retire
Teachers in Murang’a County have accused Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) Secretarygeneral Wilson Sossion of sabotage and asked him to retire voluntarily. Murang’a South Knut branch executive secretary John Njata said Mr Sossion had stopped advocating teachers’ concerns, opting to front his own political ambitions. Mr Njata said retiring two top union officials – national chairman Mudzo Nzili and first vice-chairman Samson Mwangi Kaguma – was against Knut’s constitution and a sign that the secretary-general was pursuing his selfish concerns. Addressing a press conference, Mr Njata said that Mr Sossion had openly declared support to Nasa leader Raila Odinga while the union’s stand is to support the government of the day for the sake of improving teachers’ welfare.
