Evans Njoroge, who represents Knut members from Central Kenya, called on Mr Sossion to resign, saying that teachers from central Kenya wanted him out.

"These views represent teachers from central Kenya. And we have said in one voice that Sossion must go. (Haya maoni yote tunawakilisha waalimu wote wa mkoa wa kati. Na tumesema kwa kauli moja Sossion lazima aende), "Evans Njoroge said. 

The Knut Central Kenya leadership issued a one week ultimatum for Sossion to vacate office, threatening to take drastic but unspecified action should he fail to do so.

This comes days after the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) deregistered him, a move that was ratified by a court of law.

Wilson Sossion has faced a rebellion within the teachers' union since his nomination to Parliament by the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM).

He has strongly rejected calls for him to resign following his nomination to Parliament, saying that he is representing the interest of teachers in the House.

His detractors contend that his nomination to Parliament distracts him from representing teachers effectively, a contention that he has strongly rubbished.

At the time of writing this story, the embattled SG had not reacted to calls for him to resign.
