Kenyatta has bought Nzili to undermine Sossion, kill KNUT

16 November 2015, 11:19 Jackson Okata

Nairobi - The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of ‘buying,’ ‘bribing’ and using the Union's chairman Mudzo Nzili to undermine the combative union secretary general Wilson Sossion.

KNUT Nakuru branch chairman, Njau Kuria said that the move by President Kenyatta to purportedly strike a deal with Nzili on behalf of teachers is meant to divide the giant teachers' union and cause havoc within the Union.

Speaking Sunday at a church function in Nakuru own, Kuria said that Nzili has been pocketed by the Jubilee government to betray Kenyan teachers.

“It was surprising to see Nzili the chairman going to State House without the secretary general’s consent and purport to be representing Kenyan teachers. The truth is that he is being used to undermine Sossion and we as Kenyan teachers will not allow that to happen,” said Kuria.

“The President seems to have decided to use divide and rule policy to split and finally kill teachers' unions in this nation but we teachers are watching him and will decide in 2017,” he added.

Kuria called on the secretary general to convene an urgent delegate’s conference to deliberate on the State House agreement and discuss Nzili’s behavior.

“No agreement between the government and teachers can be binding without the approval of the national delegate’s conference and what Nzili agreed with the President is null and void until Sossion calls for a delegate’s conference to discuss the offer,” he said.
