This Morning KNUT has had a press conference. When media was invited, we thought it was something of importance, like Sossion stepping down to allow a NON POLITICIAN HEAD the union. Unfortunately he treated the media to the usual circus of saying nothing in particular but hoping to remain relevant. He said and I quote…
“I am directing all schools to establish a gender desk. There must be a KNUT gender desk at every school that must be expanded to include TSC and other stakeholders,”
Sossion urged the Ministry of Education and the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to adopt a gender desk in schools to ensure every learner returns to school. To make it look like a BIG joke.. The KNUT Sec-Gen added that police will also need to be incorporated in the programme to ensure that the perpetrators are put behind bars. Imagine… this guy wants us to work with police in arresting sex offenders. Huu ni ujinga gani?
We wonder. Why Would Sossion call a press conference to address Magoha and TSC CEO Nancy Machaia about setting up a gender desk? We all saw Sossion angling to fit in the camera on the steps of KICD yesterday when Magoha claimed he had met all stakeholders in Education. Why did he NOT AIR HIS VIEWS ABOUT GENDER DESK in that meeting?
Sossion is the last person to talk about gender and equality. His union KNUT has no gender desk. He sacked and chased away all strong women in the union.
*He threw out Dorothy Muthoni who was running the desk. He locked offices housing the Second National woman rep Jecinter Ndegwa. He threw out the strong willed, internationally renowned Benta Opande. He has removed all women in KNUT branches including Modesta Akaki in Nairobi, Winnie In Suba, Justine In Busia, Kadzo Unda in Malindi, Agness in Makueni. Sossion has insulted women. He insulted the late Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso telling her she is a woman who cannot win a sit in Bomet. He told her to go seek votes in Kisumu where she was married. Sossion has fought and insulted TSC CEO Nancy Njeri calling her a woman.* We have on our phones records of the Sg sending us texts telling us to paint Nancy Macharia a loose who man who sleeps around. Robert Alai went ahead and published insults about the TSC CEO after, Amunga refused to do so on behalf of his boss at the time, one Sg Sossion. What the hell is he telling us about women and gender…?
What Sossion was doing this morning politics. May be he hopes he will include it in the BBI thing. Truth, teachers are only directed by the Teachers service Commission their employer. Teachers go to school to teach…. Not to address teen pregnancies that happened during covid 19 lockdown. Hiyo ni kazi ya pastor and qualified persons. Let Sossion stop fooling Kenyans that he is in control of teachers he is NOT. We have a dully registered WOMEN TEACHERS LOBBY GROUP AND ASSOCIATION IN KENYA. KENYA WOMEN TEACHERS ASSOCIATION. That is the organ that can talk to us properly about gender violence in schools. NOT SOSSION AND HIS DEAD AS A DODOO KNUT.
