Nairobi - Capital News reports that government has yielded in to demands by the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) and agreed to make a lump sum payment of KES13.5 billion at the end of October, effectively bringing the teachers crippling three-week strike to an end.
The deal was hammered out at a meeting with Finance Minister Njeru Githae on Sunday afternoon.
KNUT chairman Wilson Sossion said moments after the agreement was reached that the strike had ended, but added that the decision would be communicated to members after a meeting of the union’s top organ.
