Collins Oyuu, the newly-elected KNUT Secretary General.

Collins Oyuu has been elected the new Secretary General of the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) taking over from Wilson Sossion who resigned on Friday.

Oyuu, who has been the KNUT Chairman, was elected unopposed during the union’s elections held on Saturday at Ruaraka grounds in Nairobi.

He becomes the seventh KNUT Secretary General and will hold the seat for the next five years.

Oyuu was the sole candidate vying for Sossion’s influential position, which he had held for nearly eight years.

Members of the union voted for over 15 positions, with a single candidate vying for the positions of Chairperson, Treasurer, and Deputy Secretary General.

Sossion, who is also a nominated Member of Parliament, resigned as Secretary General of the union day before the Union’s elections.

He made the announcement in a press briefing in Nairobi flanked by his immediate family members including his wife and children. No KNUT official was  present during the resignation.

“In the interest of KNUT continuity and its membership, I hereby on June 25, 2021 bow out of KNUT leadership honorably. I shall remain loyal to KNUT and will always be available to advice and support the leadership of the union,” Sossion said.
