Mr. Oyuu floors Mr. Karinga to Clinche position of 1st Vice National Chair (KNUT); full results here

KNUT by election that was meant to fill the positions of national chair, first vice national chair, second vice national chair and deputy secretary general successfully went on uninterrupted.

Four regions  (Nyanza, Mombasa, Western and Central) were  fighting to claim top Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) leadership positions.

The four regions cumulatively have 926 delegates.

Broken down, Nyanza has 330 delegates, Western 239, Central 217 and Coast 140.

Other regions like Nairobi has 44 delegates, Eastern 93, North Eastern 21 and Rift Valley 503.

The position of the first vice national chairman was hotly contested proofed to be so polarising.

Mr. Oyuu floored Mr. Karinga

Traditionally, the seat is preserved for central but Mr. Collins Oyuu defied odds and floored Patrick Karinga who hails from central Kenya. KNUT secretary general Hon. Wilson Sossion was backing Collins Oyuu while National Treasurer, Mr. John Matiangi had thrown his weight behind Mr. Karinga. Its increasingly clear that the though guy Mr. Sossion still enjoys huge support.

Other positions

Position of the second vice-chairman’s that is reserved for the Coast, was taken by Rosaline Mkanjala.  Mkanjala was battling it out with Kadzo Unda who is national trustee.

Clement Omollo clinched the position of assistant Secretary general while Wycliffe Omuchei who didn’t have a competitor for the position of national chair, enjoyed a smooth win.
