SUMMARY

Mr Wilson Sossion has been criticised and accused of using his position to advance his political interests


He has asked ODM party to remove him from the nominee list and replace him with anyone they would find appropriate

Kenyan National Union of Teachers Secretary General Wilson Sossion has requested the Orange Democratic Movement to take out his name from the list of those supposed to be nominated to Parliament.

According to Sossion, he had a meeting with ODM leader Raila Odinga and an agreement was reached – another person to be appointed in his place.

The Secretary General stated that he was heavily committed to affairs of the Union and could not accept ODM’s offer.

He was speaking in Baringo during the swearing in of Stanly Kiptis the new governor.

Sossion also said that KNUT was happy that one of their members could serve in the capacity of a governor and that they would let Kiptis focus on serving his people by taking away all his duties in the National Executive Committee.


Unproven reports suggested that session was asked to step down for Isaac Ruto, the Chama Cha Mashinani Party leader, who lost the governor’s seat to Jubilee Joyce Laboso.

Mr Sossion had during the campaigns for the general elections worked closely with the opposition coalition NASA and had been listed for nomination by the ODM party whose leader Raila Odinga was a presidential candidate.

Mr Sossion’s move to support the opposition created cracks within the union’s leadership across the country as his counterparts denounced having followed his political path as he had been advancing his own political mileage.
