Hesbon Otieno KNUT: Kenya National Union of teachers (Knut) Secretary-General Wilson Sossion has finally been removed despite obtaining a court order stopping his ouster.

In press briefing, on Friday Knut national chairman Wickliffe Omucheyi announced that the union’s National Executive Council (NEC) met on Thursday and unanimously agreed to replace Mr Sossion. They replaced him with his deputy, Mr Hesbon Otieno in an acting capacity.

Mr Omucheyi said the meeting was occasioned after the top leadership learnt that Mr Sossion was making decisions without consulting with other members.
“We have not had a good relationship with Teachers Service Commission, the Ministry of Education and the government,” he said.

Mr Otieno accused Mr Sossion of undermining the powers of the TSC Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia, chairperson Lydia Nzomo, Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha and President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“We cannot have a leader who always fights the government, we want to have a cordial relationship with the government,” said Mr Otieno who announced that the Knut offices will be opened on September 3. Mr Omucheyi said their Thursday meeting was not against any court orders.

“The meeting we held yesterday (Thursday) was different from the one called off by the former secretary-general” he said.
They also accused Mr Sossion of opposing the -Based Curriculum against the other Knut official’s decision.
Mr Otieno claimed that Mr Sossion started working as a lone ranger in April last year and efforts to stop him had failed.

The union’s National Executive Council (NEC) on Friday ensured Mr Sossion’s name deleted from the registrar of trade unions after camping at the Ministry of Labour and Social Services for hours to push for change of list of Knut leaders.

The Registrar of Trade Unions E. N Gichera, in a letter dated August 29 to the Knut secretary- general, said she had accepted the change of Knut officials. Hesbon Otieno KNUT.
