, NAIROBI, Kenya, May 2 – The power play at the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) is set to continue on Wednesday during a meeting called by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to discuss teachers’ promotions.
The meeting comes as the teachers’ union suspended Secretary General Wilson Sossion pending an in-depth probe into his conduct.
While acting Secretary General Hezron Otieno asserted that he is the spokesman of the union, Sossion insisted that he is duly elected.
Otieno is expected to present the case during the meeting with TSC.
Acting Chairman Wycliffe Omucheyi urged the suspended Secretary General to accept NEC’s resolution adding that he will be given opportunity to defend himself during the AGM.
The acting Secretary General is set to advise on a date during which NEC will meet to discuss the fate of Sossion.
According to minutes seen by Capital FM News, Sossion unsuccessfully resisted attempts to introduce a motion against him constantly insisting that the NEC proceeded to discuss the agenda he had tabled.
The meeting was attended by KNUT top officials who included Omucheyi, Deputy Secretary-General Collins Oyuu, Acting National Treasurer Muuo Ndiku, and Acting Vice National Treasurer, Dorothy Muthoni.
Sossion had been nominated to the National Assembly by the Orange Democratic Movement, a slot he accepted.
