Regulation 187 (1) and (2) of the Code of Regulations for Teachers requires teachers released to trade unions to resign or retire from service once they opt to vie for political office.

“It has been noted that you were nominated as a Member of Parliament yet the Commission has not received your resignation or retirement letter,” TSC boss Nancy Macharia wrote in the sacking letter signed by J.M. Maundu on January 15, 2018.

She added: “The commission had decided to terminate your services as a teacher with effect from January 15, 2018.”

Mr Sossion said he saw no reason to quit the service despite becoming a legislator.

He said his nomination to the National Assembly was by virtue of the elective position he held as Knut secretary-general.
