Nominated MP Wilson Sossion says he will not relinquish his position as the secretary-general the Kenya National Union of Teachers.
Labour Cabinet Secretary Phyllis Kandie on Wednesday asked Sossion and other trade unionists who won elective seats to vacate office.
But the Knut boss on Thursday cautioned the Labour ministry and the government against interfering with trade union matters.
“I am not going anywhere. This is a trade union not a government entity. I am the Knut secretary-general. Let the delegates decide,” Sossion is reported telling the Labour CS.
However, a section of disgruntled delegates from the Coast asked Sossion to resign as Knut boss.
The delegates, who are aligned with Mudzo Nzili, former Knut chairman who was forced on leave by Sossion, said they would push until the Knut boss vacates office.
“We agree with the gazette notice. We want him out,” said Kitu Gwengwele, Knut Coast spokesman.
