MP asks teachers to axe Sossion

24 September 2015, 18:53

Nakuru - A member of parliament wants teachers to axe their union boss if the current pay tussle between them and the government fails to yield fruits.

Nakuru west MP, Samuel Arama said that KNUT boss Wilson Sossion has disappointed teachers in the ongoing strike.

Speaking Thursday in Nakuru town, Arama said that teachers should exert their authority and expel Sossion and other union bosses.

Arama said that Sossion and KNUT have not only wasted precious time for Kenyan children and parents but also teachers.

"As things appear, it will be hard for teachers to get what they want and are fighting for and this should be blamed on Sossion and other union bosses. Teachers should tell Sossion to quit as KNUT boss because he has wasted their time and failed them completely," said Arama.

He added: "The same way teachers are going to miss their September salary they should also deny Sosion his hefty salary from KNUT coffers,"

The legislator said that KNUT's fight for a salary increment failed because Sossion and his brothers failed to reason with the government.

"If only Sossion and his brothers were realistic, then this issue would have been sorted out long time ago but they grew horns and now even the courts cannot help them," said Arama.

He called on KNUT and KUPPET officials to swallow their pride and call off the strike because it has evidently failed to yield fruit.
