Price of Rebellion: Banks reject signatures from new KNUT Boss

Operations at the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) face paralysis after banks refuse to recognize signatures of new KNUT officials.

This has made them unable to conduct any financial businesses from their accounts in various commercial banks.

In a letter addressed to the staff of the union, the treasurer, Mr. John Matiang’i lamented;

“As your national treasurer, I understand the predicaments and agony we are all going through financially. It’s now getting to three months and all of us have not been paid [together] with our staff,” said Mr. Matiang’i.

The banks however are acting according to the law, which upheld Dr. Wilson Sossion’s injunction against his sacking.

The stalemate between Sossion and his deputy, Hezborn Otieno alongside the rest of the officials, isnt expected to end soon, and as they await the ruling on the appeal filed by KNUT in September 24th.
