#KNUTGREED: SOSSION, NZILI NOW FACE TWITTER WRATH
Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) secretary general Wilson Sossion got a taste of the wrath of Kenyans on Twitter who attacked the teachers’ union officials with a hashtag challenging their tactics.
Mr Sossion, who joined Twitter a year ago, is currently a subject of discussion under a hashtag #KNUTGreed, which captures the anger of some Kenyans who feel the union is not being fair in its ongoing strike.
As the nationwide teachers’ strike continues to bite with pupils still at home after a long December holiday, tweeps have taken to social media to condemn the union.
They accused union officials of boycotting talks and pushing for basic salary increase so that its members can remit higher subscription fees.
Here are some of the thoughts expressed via the hashtag that started on Sunday:
AMB: Edith Fortunate @IamFortunate1 tweeted, “After thorough review I am now convinced this teachers strike isn’t about their welfare but the welfare of certain individuals. #KNUTgreed.”
