Wilson Sossion has made quite the impact in the Kenyan education through his leadership in the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) where he is the secretary general. He has served the union for a long time now and has occasionally got into trouble with their employer TSC following his remarks as well as demands.
He is a very outspoken person who has never shied away from speaking his mind and defending teacher’s rights.
Wilson has, however, worked so hard to be where he is now as he came from a humble background. Sossion was born in 1969 in Pokot County. He was, however raised in Bomet County where he worked hard and joined Egerton University to pursue a bachelor’s Degree in education.
Sossion has a lot of experience as a teacher and has worked in so many top schools among them the popular Tenwek Boys and this is where he got the push by his fellow teachers to get into union politics. He pursued it and he is now a significant member in the union.
