The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has formally Gazetted the termination of Knut secretary general Wilson Sossion’s contract as a teacher and blacklisted him from teaching in any institution in the country.
“The teachers service commission has removed the name of the individual named herein (Wilson Sossion) from the register of teachers. Further under the law, the individual cannot engage in teaching in any school,” reads the notice
TSC had deregistered Sossion in January 2018 following his entry into politics where he was nominated to parliament.
TSC, in dismissing Sossion, argued acceptance of the nomination was inconsistent with his position as a public officer and a teacher under control and supervision by the commission.
Speaking to the Star on Friday, Sossion stated that his termination of employment as a teacher does not affect his rights within the union and the position he holds.
