In Summary
  • Mr Matiang’i said the national steering committee is ready to fight for Knut to the end even he hit back at those saying he is eyeing the secretary general’s position to stop the propaganda.

The Kenya National Union of Teachers(Knut) steering committee Wednesday banned embattled secretary-general Wilson Sossion from accessing the union headquarters.

The committee that was chaired by Knut national chairman Wickliffe Omucheyi said Mr Sossion is no longer the secretary-general.

He said the union will not be run by courts, insisting that the only person who can speak for the union is Mr Hesbon Otieno who was appointed by the National Executive Council (NEC).

“This union is governed by a constitution and not by courts. We are asking our brother Sossion to stop masquerading as the secretary-general,” said Mr Omucheyi.

Speaking at the Knut headquarters, national treasurer John Matiang’i said it is not going to be business as usual for Mr Sossion.

“From today, we are not going to allow anyone who is not an employee or a union member to access our offices, Sossion should know that he remains suspended and therefore he is no longer leading this union,” said Mr Matiang’i.

Mr Matiang’i said the national steering committee is ready to fight for Knut to the end even he hit back at those saying he is eyeing the secretary general’s position to stop the propaganda.
