Wilson Sossion has today ended his whirlwind journey as KNUT Secretary General.
In an heartfelt statement he has said that he intends to step down from his position and concentrate on politics. He hinted that he had done that out of interest for KNUT to ensure continuity.
“I have today decided that in the interest of KNUT continuity, its membership and myself I hereby today the 25th day of June 2021, bow out of KNUT leadership honourably.
“I shall remain loyal to KNUT and I will always be available to advise and support the leadership of the union. I trust that the government of Kenya as I exit will find it necessary to allow union dues to flow to KNUT again,” Sossion said in a statement at a press conference.
As a parting shot, he alluded government had failed the teaching fraternity
“I would wish to restate that KNUT members deserve credit for the restrain and sobriety they have shown in the face of open provocation and frustration by the government.
“I salute all the members of KNUT including my colleagues in the leadership who have endured without salaries for two years,” he said.
