    Former Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Secretary-General Wilson Sossion, slammed President Uhuru Kenyatta for interfering with civil societies and unions. 

    Sossion, addressed mourners at the burial of Kebeneti Secondary School principal Joel Mutai on Thursday, January 13, in Belgut, Kericho County. 

    He lamented that he resigned from KNUT in June 2021, after being frustrated by Uhuru's alleged dictatorial policies. 

    "Uhuru promised children laptops and he brought us a fraudulent curriculum called Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC). This is a business entity.

    “A good curriculum must be understood by teachers, learners, and parents as well. It must be exciting and inspiring. It cannot be frustrating.”

    Sossion further raised concerns with Uhuru's government, lamenting that it was repressive and stifles civil society groups. 

    “Civil societies and unions are dead. No one is speaking on behalf of Kenyans. They now want to finish political parties through the Political Parties Amendment Bill,” Sossion ranted referring to the Bill that was passed at the National Assembly, seeking to allow the formation of coalition parties. 

    "That is why I joined UDA and I am now supporting Deputy President William Ruto for the presidency," Sossion, who resigned as KNUT boss in June 2021 vouched for the DP. 

    The ODM Nominated MP of Parliament was hopeful that Ruto will clinch victory on August 9, and swiftly to act laws passed by Uhuru and Raila which he claimed were retrogressive. 

    Sossion announced that he will vie for the Senate seat in Bomet in the upcoming August General Election.
