A section of KNUT officials on Thursday stormed the union’s headquarters and demanded the removal of Secretary General, Wilson Sossion.
The situation, which was getting out of hand, had to be managed by the police, who fired teargas canisters the teachers.
The police later tried to calm the situation in the area.
During a press conference held on Wednesday by Sossion, he directed that the union offices would be closed from August 28 to September 23.
He went ahead and postponed KNUT’s NEC meeting that was supposed to be scheduled for Thursday.
” Within my power as secretary general given by the constitution, I did postpone the NEC meeting,” Sossion stated.
The KNUT boss also announced that he would only step aside if voted out by delegates.
“I’m not quitting…I’m not quitting…and I cannot be removed. Forget about it, no matter how much money they use, I am not on trial. I will only go home if the delegates say so,” he remarked.
