NAIROBI, Kenya, May 3 – Suspended Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Secretary General Wilson Sossion says he is going on with his duties as the body’s spokesman describing his ouster as inconsequential.
Sossion told Capital FM News that according to the law, he is the duly elected spokesman and dared those opposed to this to present their case at the Annual Delegates Conference.
On Wednesday, the differences at the union came into sharp focus when Sossion turned up alone for a meeting with the teachers’ employer on promotions.
Other union leaders led by acting Secretary-General Hesbon Otieno did not show up, saying they had asked for postponement to allow them put their house in order.
Sossion was voted out on Monday by members of the National Executive Council so that he can concentrate on serving as ODM nominated MP.
Knut leaders have asked him to respect the constitution of the union.
Sossion is expected to appear before the Annual Delegates Conference in December to argue his case.
The conference has power to overturn NEC’s decision.
