Sossion's contract terminated

Sossion officially kicked out

Embattled Knut Secretary General Wilson Sossion

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has gazetted the deregistration of Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) Secretary-General Wilson Sossion.

TSC removed Mr Sossion from its list of teachers on Friday in a notice that was signed by Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia.

In July, Labour Court Judge Nelson Abuodha allowed TSC to deregister Sossion following his entry into politics.

The court ruled that Sossion was subject to regulations governing the teaching service.

No politics for teachers

Further, section 16 of the Teachers Code of Conduct and Ethics (2015) requires a teacher to maintain political neutrality at all times.

The acceptance of the nomination to National Assembly by ODM obviously puts Mr Sossion on a partisan political activity," Justice Abuodha said.

"It was a manifestation of an agreement to support ODM agenda both in and outside Parliament,” he added.

The court further declined to fault TSC for not interdicting Sossion before firing him after finding it would have been of no use as he had already been sworn in as MP.
