Kenya: KUSNET Distances Itself From PUSETU

KENYA Union of Special Needs Education Teachers (Kusnet) has distanced itself from the newly-formed Confederation of Public Servants Trade Union of Kenya (Pusetu).

Kusnet's secretary-general James Torome warned its members against associating with Pusetu saying the Kusnet is affiliated to Central Organisation of Trade Union.

Addressing the media in Narok town yesterday, Torome said: "Kusnet is firmly behind Cotu, which is good for us. This means our recognition will be worldwide." Torome said Kusnet has no intention of being Pusetu members and added his union has confidence in Cotu.

"We have no relationship with Pusetu. Our union will work closely with Cotu because it can spearhead the welfare of special education and early childhood education," said Torome.
