Sossion To Replace Magoha? He Speaks

September 8, 2022

Wilson Sossion, the former Secretary General for Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT), has spoken about the possibility of replacing George Magoha as Education CS in Ruto’s government.

The outspoken former nominated MP campaigned for Ruto and is thought to be angling for a job under Ruto.

When asked if he is up for the Education Cabinet Secretary or Permanent Secretary jobs, Sossion said: “The president decides who serves where.”

The Unionist noted he did not have any sort of agreement with Ruto in order to support his candidature.

“I do not have, any pre-election agreement on that particular job and we do not lobby, the president will decide where you will serve,” he said.

Sossion said his work was to help Kenya Kwanza come up with a manifesto and popularise it. He said  Kenya Kwanza’s education charter is a key tool in transforming the education sector and the welfare of teachers.

“My business was to support Kenya Kwanza in its philosophy of the bottom-up economic model. It was in drafting the charter and I’m happy because the charter is good for education and teachers,” he told K24 TV on Wednesday.

“Whatever else happens after here is not within my power. We finished our engagement with the president as Kenyans at the ballot box. Beyond the ballot box, the president will make his own arrangements and appoint whoever he thinks.”

Sossion resigned as KNUT Sec-Gen in June last year amid wrangles within the union and frosty relations with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).
