Former KNUT chairman Wilson Sossion described Uhuru as a confused former president.

Speaking at a K24 television morning show named New Dawn, Sossion said that Uhuru Kenyatta is still a confused former President. He argued that previous presidents should enter retirement with dignity, as Moi and Kibaki did, to respect the institution and office of a former president.

 A section of Kenyans have not taken this lightly and have condemned his remarks through comments. They have urged him to honour the past Head of State.

They have further criticized Sossion, claiming that he is the one who is perplexed after being fired from his position as Secretary General of the Kenya National Union of Teachers and that he is now making such scathing remarks and bringing up Uhuru to gain attention. They concluded that Sossion wanted to be perceived favourably by President Ruto. 

They also contended that because Uhuru is youthful, he cannot compare to Moi and Kibaki, his two predecessors, who stepped down when they were ill and worn out. Therefore, he cannot refrain from politics as Sossion, and other supporters of President William Ruto would like.

As Azimio leader Raila Amollo Odinga continues to stage public protests to call on the Kenya Kwanza administration to resign because he believes President Ruto stole his victory in the most recent election, the political climate in Kenya is getting hotter.

Kenyans laughed when Uhuru Kenyatta declared at the funeral of Professor George Omore Magoha, a former cabinet secretary for education, that he would support Raila Odinga and stay in politics. Well, most Kenyans expected Uhuru to retire and be entirely out of politics, just like the other Kenyan retired presidents.

Uhuru's move might be one of Kenya's most unbelievable events and a shift in the country's political landscape since, unlike in the past, when a president has served for ten years, this time around, they might not all retire.
