Bridge International Academies Sues Kenya National Union of Teachers for Defamation

Friday, June 23, 2017

Bridge International Academies Limited has sued Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) and secretary-general Wilson Sossion for defamation, arguing that they published offensive and untrue information about the chain of schools in reports and letters to various education stakeholders.

The chain has asked the High Court to issue an award for damages caused by Knut and Mr Sossion’s statements as well as bar them from further defaming Bridge International Academies.

Mr Sossion in his response argues that his claims on Bridge International reaping profits without providing quality education were fair comments that were well researched by Knut and global lobby Education International (EI).
