Busia County KEWOTA Launch Organized in Conjunction with KNUT Union

According to Peter Amunga a KNUT blogger, the KEWOTA meeting was convened in consultation with Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT).

“Okisai stormed the meeting calling the female teachers names like Malaya, washenzi, etc,” claimed Amunga.

Mr. Okisai in the company of other teachers forcefully entered the KEWOTA meeting and started flushing out the female teachers.

The Kuppet official claims the women association (KEWOTA) has been deducting the female teachers without their consent.

KEWOTA and KNUT Mended their Relations in Laikipia on 13th February 2020

The clash between the Busia Kuppet official and Kewota-KNUT ones is seen as going contrary to how the national officials of the above unions relate.

On the 13th of February 2020, KNUT and KEWOTA mended their relations in Laikipia during the burial ceremony of Mureithi Ndegwa, brother to Jecinter Ndegwa, the current KEWOTA national treasurer and formerly the KNUT women representative.

In the Laikipia function, all the teacher unions were represented including KUPPET.

KUPPET Busia Chairman Interdicted after being found with a Learner

To express anger displeasure, Amunga criticized Mr. Okisai’s action claiming Busia Kuppet branch is the worst run branch.

The blogger went ahead to prove himself by referring to a sensitive case that saw the Busia KUPPET Chairman get interdicted.

“The Chairman of KUPPET Busia was interdicted by TSC and is awaiting dismissal after being found in a compromising situation with a learner in Mundika area last year,” wrote Amunga.
