There was drama at KNUT headquarters in Nairobi after a group of union members forcibly swore in Hesbon Otieno as the Secretary-General. The group, who are members of the union's National Executive Council, dramatically swore in Otieno in full glare of journalist and cameras. The "mock swearing-in" saw the one member leading the ceremony while the rest chanted after him happily.
Otieno held a Bible in one hand with a male teacher aiding him to lift his hand while they all narrated the oath in unison.

The members maintained that Sossion, who was nominated to Parliament by ODM, should relinquish his post and focus on politics.
