Teachers want Wilson Sossion removed as KNUT boss

Teachers opt to Court to have Sossion ousted

The seven teachers who moved to court cited in their application that it is illegitimate to hold two parallel full-time jobs.

The application certified as urgent by Employment and Labour Relations Court seeks to eject him as chair of KNUT since he is also a nominated Member of Parliament.

The team that was led by James Ng’ang’a, Gladys Alemi, Kenneth Bande in their application pointed out the importance and functions of Secretary General in regards to accomplishment  of planned goals and objectives.

They further asserted that Mr Sossion’s position does not need divided attention hence he cannot execute the duties as required.

They indicated that Sossion’s position in KNUT is unlawful since the law does not allow state officers to hold two parallel jobs adding that that holding two parallel offices is an outrageous violation of section 26 (1) of the Leadership and Integrity Act.

The KNUT boss was nominated by ODM despite his plea to be removed from the list of nominees. Sossion stated that he is heavy committed to the Teacher’s union as the reason why he wanted to be removed from the list of Parliament nominees.
