KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion
Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) Secretary General Wilson Sossion has dismissed claims by Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria that the union had diverted Sh300 million to fund Opposition campaigns.
On Sunday, Mr Kuria was quoted in the local press urging the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to withhold the teachers’ contributions to Knut claiming that the funds were being diverted to fund the Opposition.
But Mr Sossion, who was one of the key speakers during a National Super Alliance (NASA) rally in Bomet, dismissed Kuria’s claims.
“The assertion is criminal in nature. Our finances are supervised by the registrar of trade unions,” he said. [Nikko Tanui]
