Embattled Kenya National Union of teachers (Knut) Secretary-General Wilson Sossion has finally been removed despite obtaining a court order stopping his ouster.
In press briefing, on Friday Knut national chairman Wickliffe Omucheyi announced that the union’s National Executive Council (NEC) met on Thursday and unanimously agreed to replace Mr Sossion.
They replaced him with his deputy, Mr Hesbon Otieno in an acting capacity.
Mr Omucheyi said the meeting was occasioned after the top leadership learnt that Mr Sossion was making decisions without consulting with other members.
“We have not had a good relationship with Teachers Service Commission, the Ministry of Education and the government,” he said.
Mr Otieno accused Mr Sossion of undermining the powers of the TSC Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia, chairperson Lydia Nzomo, Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
