Collins Oyuu has on Saturday been elected as the new Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Secretary General and will succeed outgoing Wilson Sossion.
Wilson Sossion announced his resignation from the Union on Friday after eight years of service in an emotional message ahead of the party’s meeting that was held on Saturday.
Oyuu has been KNUT chairman for sometime now and was elected unopposed as he was the only candidate and will head the docket for five years.
- Wilson Sossion to gov’t, postpone KCPE, KCSE to next year
- Wilson Sossion reinstated as KNUT Secretary-General
- KNUT opposes corporal punishment of students
Other positions during the election was that of the chairperson, Treasurer and deputy Secretary General with all three positions attracting very few candidates.
Sossion who doubles as Member of Parliament has been on the receiving end from members of the union who questioned his stand now that he joined politics as such tasks tend to push aside teacher’s needs.
He remained put, vowed to continue with his mandate and that his role as a legislator under political party will not affect his operations in any way.
On Friday while surrounded by his family, he promised his loyalty to KNUT and that he will be available for advise and support.
