Embattled Kenya National Union of Teachers Secretary General Wilson Sossion has obtained an order from labour relations court, allowing him to stay as the KNUT secretary general pending the hearing of his case on 10th June 2018.
Addressing the media today at KNUT headquarters Sossion down-played the decision by national executive council to suspend him saying the NEC did not attain the required number to suspend him.
He says is going nowhere and that only teachers through Annual Delegate Conference can remove him as the secretary general of the Union.
He further threatened to name certain government officials bankrolling the rebelling KNUT leaders should the disunity escalates.
In today’s press conference KNUT was fully guarded by private securities larger number drawn from COTU headquarters, a clear indicator that COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli has honoured his Labour day pledge to support Sossion.
Sossion is being accused of in indiscipline and not articulating teachers issues effectively from the day he was elected.
