Win for Sossion as court dismisses his ouster as Knut boss


Embattled Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) secretary general Wilson Sossion has been handed a lifeline after court dismissed his ouster.
The Employment and Labour Relations Judge Hellen Wasilwa on Tuesday ruled that the union’s National Executive Council acted in contempt of court when they convened a meeting to remove Sossion.
Justice Wasilwa, in her orders issued on September 2, reinstated Sossion as the union’s boss until a case he filed is determined.
The Hesborn Otieno-led group claimed that on August 29, Knut through its NEC members legally expelled him from the union.
The resolution was done by all the 29 members who attend the meeting.
The court heard that NEC made the decision based on Sossion’s unbecoming conduct.
Sossion next hurdle is on Friday when the Labour Court will make a ruling in a case that seeks to challenge whether he can be an MP and also hold top office at Knut.
