KUPPET accuses Sossion of ‘sleeping with the enemy’
The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Secretary General Wilson Sossion is under fire to resign from the rival Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) over allegations of receiving a bribe to back the controversial AON Minet insurance scheme for teachers.
KUPPET wants Sossion to explain why he has reverted to supporting NHIF over AON Minet as the preferred Health Insurance provider for teachers under KNUT, a move he was strongly opposed to just months ago.
Earlier, KNUT had carried out a campaign amongst its members urging them to join the AON cover. KUPPET had protested the decision to procure AON’s services, a decision the teachers employer, TSC, and KNUT were in support of.
KUPPET had refused to accept the insurance cover claiming that the medical cover was not as superior as the one offered by NHIF.
Further, KUPPET says it moved to court to block their employer from remitting any money from their salaries to AON and managed to get a stay order.
KNUT members are now opposed to the double remittance to both schemes and want to remain with NHIF.
The AON Minet medical scheme is currently under investigation by the Ethics and Anti- Corruption Commission (EACC).
