Teachers risk huge fine

05 July 2013, 12:28

Nairobi - The ongoing strike by the teachers as the ignored an industrial court order to resume work on Tuesday may end up costing them a hefty KES 2.4 billion in fines by the government.

According to Business Daily, Attorney-General Githu Muigai on Thursday filed an application at the court seeking to have each of the 240,000 teachers involved in the boycott to be fined KES 10 000.

The move by the AG came just hours before President Uhuru Kenyatta pleaded again with teachers to resume classes, asking the union leaders to embrace dialogue, saying they cannot do so in the streets.
