Sossion to sue newspaper after it claimed ‘wife cheated on him’ – VIDEO
Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) Secretary General Wilson Sossion has said he will sue a local newspaper after it claimed his marriage had collapsed .
In its top story published on Friday, the weekly paper claimed Mr Sossion’s 11-month marriage to 32 year-old wife Vivianne Kenduiywa had collapsed due to her infideliy.
The 48 year-old Knut boss married Ms Kenduiywa in April last year.
Hours after the story was published, Mr Sossion and his wife fired back by posting a video on social media that captured them locked in a warm embrace in their Bomet home.
“We are here in Bomet and happy and what is in the paper are lies and we shall sue the newspaper for malicious damage,” Mr Sossion says in the video.
Mr Sossion married Ms Kenduiywa after his first wife and the mother of his three children died in a orad accident in 2010
He wedded his new wife at a low-key ceremony held at the Attorney General’s chambers. They later held a reception party at their Bomet home that was attended by politicians, trade unionists and influential businessmen.
In an earlier interview with Business Daily newspaper 2015, Mr Sossion offered that only God knew if he would ever remarry after the death of his first wife.
Mr Sossion started his career as a teacher in 1993 at his alma mater, Tenuek High School, in Bomet.
“I’m a stickler for time keeping. If I have appointments, I honour them. If it’s time to be home, I’ll be home,” he told a daily paper in a recent interview.
