Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Secretary-General Wilson Sossion has alluded to an existing plot to oust him from the union.
The KNUT sec-gen alleged that officials from the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), KNUT, and the Kenya Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) are planning to rig him out of the forthcoming KNUT elections.
He claimed that the agencies are financing his rivals in KNUT in the upcoming elections which are likely to be held this month, June 2021, so as to kick him out of the union's leadership.
Sossion accused TSC of being opposed to his relentless fight for the rights and welfare of tutors in the country.
He alleged that KUPPET has paid senior officials at KNUT Ksh12 million to oust him, however, reiterating that he was elected by teachers, and only they can remove him.
"I was elected by teachers and I am here on merit. It is only the teachers who can remove me from here," Sossion told the media while on a campaign at Bana Resort yesterday, June 1.
He assured teachers that he would fight for a new Ksh32 billion Collective Bargain Agreement (CBA) if re-elected.
Sossion's tenure is wavering as a section of KNUT branch leaders have moved to call for his replacement at the helm of the union.
