International Unions Urge Uhuru To Intervene In Knut, TSC Dispute

A KNUT executive Swears To Contest and Beat Sossion in May Elections

Kenya National Union of Teachers KNUT Secretary-General Wilson Sossion’s tenure at the helm is currently under threat after his friend-turned-foe declared his interest in the coveted secretary general post.

Stanley Mutai, who managed to capture the Kericho branch SG post, despite Sossion’s disinterest in him,   has set his eyes on the SG post and promised Sossion a competitive battle.

Mutai, scored 312 votes to beat Sossion’s preferred candidate Anne Chepkoech, who garnered 294 votes in the hotly contested election in which Sossion unsuccessfully attempted to determine the office bearers.

The election was held after the Labour and Relations court in Nakuru threw out a suit filed by Sossion which sought to bar Mutai and other branch officials from participating in the election over corruption allegations.

In his victory speech after the election held at Kericho Teachers Training College, Mutai declared a head-on war against Sossion.

“My relationship with Sossion is irreparable. I will fight with him properly. The lies against me that I stole the union bus and plots have come to an end today,” he said.

While declaring his intention to unseat Sossion from the SG seat in the forthcoming union election, Mutai said a new leadership was required to restore KNUT to its former glory.

“Sossion, ceased being a trade unionist a long time ago. The time has come to return the back to the teachers. Brother Sossion has lost it terribly. He has brought the union to its lowest ebb,” he said.
