The Nation newspaper has made it clear. There is a govt hand in civil servants and teachers unions elections.
We saw the confusion of the Ministry of health cancelling the KNUT ADC because of COVID protocols. Later in the day, Health PS Susan Mochache was intimidated by CS Kahiga Mutai to revoke her circular and order that despite covid, KNUT ELECTIONS CAN GO ON. It can only happen in this failed govt. Rumours have it that MUTAHI Kagwe did this, after pressure from TSC CEO NANCY MACHARIA and Nyeri county governor Kahiga Mutahi who was a KNUT executive secretary.
The reason we get on the streets as to why govt hand is in this is because they want Sossion out.
Government is aware that a strong union leader leading teachers at a time when the economy is not performing is dangerous.
To achieve this, govt VIA MINISTRY OF LABOUR denied KNUT it’s rightful dues and agency fee. Knut has not gotten vany money for the last 3 years of Uhuru govt.
Suddenly as we approach ELECTIONS govt has given Sossion opponents 120 million shillings to spent and distablise KNUT. 120 million to people who have been hungry for 3 years to use on removing their strong leader is tempting enough. Ata kama ni wewe.
So, Oyuu a man who quit teaching, became a matatu tout and used Kenyan ways if doing things to reach KNUT hqs is the blue eyed boy of the govt.
Yesterday he goes to ministry of labour and compromises the commissioners to come and preside over the KNUT ELECTIONS despite the covid restrictions and lack of OFFICIAL channels of doing things. (At any union such arrangements are only done by the secretary general)
The ministry then went ahead to take orders from an illegitimate person and an interested party in the coming KNUT election and even released a circular claiming they will be available as referees in the KNUT ELECTIONS.
An already biased, compromised referee from Ministry of Labour is sign enough, that Govt of Kenya will be at the ballot box during KNUT elections at Ruaraka sports club on Saturday.
I want to tell government. TRY. The same way the Judiciary has refused the executive from meddling with it’s running, is the same way UNIONS WILL STOP THIS GOVT.
