BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,5TH MAY 2018-Leadership wrangles facing  Kenya national union of Teachers (KNUT) escalated on Saturday after a group of teachers’ union members  stormed headquarters in Nairobi  demanding  that the union’s  secretary general Wilson Sossion leaves office.

The group, who are members of the union’s National Executive Council, said they are ready to swear in Mr Hesbon Otieno as the secretary general.

The members maintained that the current secretary general, who was nominated to Parliament by ODM, should relinquish the position and concentrate on politics.

“We are here to officially take office,” said Mr Otieno, who claims he was elected to head the Kenya Union of Teachers (Knut).

The group said teachers’ issues cannot be mixed with politics, therefore, Mr Otieno should take over and serve teachers without divided attention.

They arrived at the Knut headquarters at 10am and forced the guard to open the boardroom so that they can swearing-in Mr Otieno.
