Reprieve for Sossion as court reinstates him to office

Embattled Kenya National Union of Teachers secretary-general Wilson Sossion will remain in office after the Employment and Labour Relations Court dismissed his ouster from office.

Justice Hellen Wasilwa on Tuesday ruled that Sossion’s ouster defied court orders.

Sossion, who is an ODM nominated Member of Parliament was kicked out of office by a section of KNUT officials led by his deputy Hesbon Otieno but he challenged the move in court.

Activities at the union have been paralysed as leaders fight over positions with staff going for three months without salaries.
