Knut of­fi­cial ac­cuses Sos­sion of sab­o­tage and asks him to re­tire

Daily Nation (Kenya) - - COUNTY NEWS - — Ndung’u Gachane

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.
