Former Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Secretary-General Wilson Sossion on Monday officially jumped ship for United Democratic Alliance (UDA), a party associated with Deputy President William Ruto.
ODM nominated him to parliament in 2017.
Sossion who has been serving as a nominated MP under ODM is eying the Bomet senatorial seat in the 2022 general elections, currently held by Dr Christopher Langat.
“The agenda of “bottom-up” in the whole world is a pro-common man and is an agenda of equality and prosperity of the common man. (For) the choice of this agenda, I can count you as one of the few brave African leaders,” he said.
The politics are now of policy and economy. The bottom-up economic model is the way to go. Empowering the hustlers is empowering a nation.
This comes just two months after Sossion resigned as KNUT SG citing lack of support from the government.
This is the second time he is showing support for DP Ruto despite being an ODM legislator.
Previously, Sossion has refuted claims that he has ditched ODM.
