On 19th June, nominated MP Wilson Sossion stepped down as the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) secretary. More information has emerged regarding the future of the teachers Union after consistent frustration from the government.

“In the interest of KNUT continuity and its membership, I hereby on June 25, 2021, bow out of KNUT leadership honorably. I shall remain loyal to KNUT and will always be available to advise and support the leadership of the union,” said Sossion

According to reports, KNUT Secretary General Collins Oyuu has a systematic plan in place that will eventually revive the union and get back union dues resume with July membership being reinstated.

Teachers could be surprised to see deductions returns on their payslips without their authorization.

A section of teachers has been accusing the Teacher Service Commission (TSC) of deducting money from their payslips without their consent. The Commission conducted an offense against the law for allowing deductions against their will.

A section of Secondary teachers feels they were added illegally to the union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) yet they did not apply to be part of the union.

TSC has been on the wrong side of the complaints about sideling some teachers’ unions since the year 2019. KNUT has also accused TSC of crippling its operations by significantly cutting off a huge chunk of membership hence denying it funds.

Mr. Sossion had opened several war fronts with his opponents and government institutions. He had picked a fight with Knut’s acting national chairman, Mr. Collins Oyuu, who was to face off with him for the secretary-general’s position in what had narrowed down to a two-horse race.

He had also accused the Labour ministry of “dishonesty, and outright biases in planning and supervision of the election,” and had alleged that the union was considering appointing the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to preside over the polls.

The union has also been having frosty relations with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC). In a statement, Sossion urged the government not to muzzle the teachers’ union by failing to remit statutory contributions from members

Sossion recounted his achievements at the helm of the Kenya National Union of Teachers, saying he impressed with his performance.
