'Arrest Sossion' Kuria says

03 September 2015, 16:24 William Korir

Nairobi - Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has called on Police to arrest Kenya National Union of Teachers Secretary Wilson Sossion for leading a teacher's strike.

Kuria says that Sossion should be jailed for forcing students to not have classes and fail to earn their right to education by calling for the strike.

He admitted that teachers had won the court case in which their salaries had been increased by between 50 and 60% but that he felt they should dialogue with the government first instead of going on strike quickly.

" They should arrest the KNUT bosses for calling for the strike. It is the best decision," he told News24 on phone.

" Yes, the court ruled in their favour but they should have first sat down with the government and agreed on a way forward. That is what they should have done instead of going on strike," he added.

KNUT has said that it will not be cowed by the government into stopping the ongoing strike which took off Monday.

Teachers have also gone to court to contest the decision by the Teachers Service Commision TSC to contest the move by the Supreme Court to award the teachers the pay-rise.

The TSC has also threatened to fire teachers who have boycotted duty even though that move is likely to bear fruit since the teachers have the better standpoint.

" The courts are with us and Kenyans are with us. The government must seek the way forward and pay teachers," Sossion added.
