Operations have resumed at the Kenya National Union of Teachers headquarters in Nairobi just a few days after auctioneers raided the place over debt.
In an exclusive interview today with Ghetto Radio News KNUT Secretary General Collins Oyuu says the raid was occasioned by accumulative debts at their Homabay branch and that the head office was responsible.
He says that they have done what they can to ensure that services resume as they continue to engage the auctioneers.
‘‘It was something normal to any organisation and those that were peddling rumours that KNUT was auctioned were simply malicious and I can assure you that we are working and teachers are receiving services,’’ he said.
‘‘The branch that was taken to court was Homabay but as you know as a union we don’t work in separation and that is why they took us to court and eventually auctioned some of our property,” he added.
Items collected by the auctioneers last week include computers, furnitures among others.
KNUT is currently grappling with debts as result as of reduced union dues following a mass exit of a section of teachers.
