Atwoli calls on Kibaki to sack Mutula and Githae

10 September 2012, 11:59 Oduor Omondi

As the paralysis in the country’s education sector enters its second week, the Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) Sec general, Francis Atwoli is now calling on President Mwai Kibaki to crack the whip on Education Minister Mutula Kilonzo and his Finance counterpart Njeru Githae over their failure to strike a deal with the striking teachers and lecturers. 

Atwoli has termed the two ministers as inept and out of touch with the problems bedeviling the nation.  

Speaking at the Tom Mboya Labour College in Kisumu when he formally opened a four day workshop on Inclusive Finance for workers, Atwoli took a swipe at Mutula for terming the teachers strike as illegal, saying that Mutula has failed to address the crisis in his ministry and thus should be sent packing.

The Cotu Secretary General threw his weight behind the industrial action by the teachers saying their demands are justifiable and thus the government should not continue ‘chest thumping’ but instead negotiate whole heartedly in order to resolve the stalemate.

Atwoli called on Kibaki and Raila to quickly convene a meeting with both KNUT and UASU in a bid to address their concerns instead of keeping mum at a time when the country needs leadership.
