In Summary
  • The officials gave Mr Sossion a seven-day ultimatum to tender his resignation.
  • They said they cannot continue supporting a secretary-general who is fighting government education policies.
  • The officials reminded the Knut boss that they have confidence in TSC.

Central region Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) officials have lashed out at their national Secretary-General Wilson Session for pushing for the abolition of the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).

The officials have now demanded for Mr Sossion’s resignation, accusing him of politicising TSC issues for his selfish interests.

The officials gave Mr Sossion a seven-day ultimatum to tender his resignation failure to which “he will face their wrath”.

Speaking in Sagana town in Kirinyaga County Monday, the officials, who were drawn from all the Knut branches in the region, vowed to take unspecified action against Mr Sossion if he fails to heed to their demands after the expiry of the ultimatum.

SECRET WEAPON

"We have a secret weapon which we shall use to dislodge Mr Sossion," the Kirinyaga Knut Branch Assistant Executive Secretary Patrick Kanaiyu stated.

The officials reminded the Knut boss that they have confidence in TSC and he should therefore stop meddling in its operations.

They observed that the TSC competently handles more than 300,000 teachers and it should not be disbanded.

"The TSC is doing a good job and it should remain. We are opposed to Mr Sossion's call for its disbandment," said Murang'a Knut branch official Evans Njuguna.
