Book sellers vow not to supply exam materials over KES 5B arrears

30 September 2015, 15:30 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Book sellers have vowed not to supply examination materials due to a KES 5 billion debt which is yet to be paid by government.

The national chairman of book sellers and stationers association, Arthur Kamau has said the government has refused to release money for supplies made to public schools from May this year.

Speaking in Nyeri town Wednesday, Kamau explained that after demanding the money, the government said that schools are closed.

“We are not sabotaging the national examinations but our 1 500 members will not supply exam materials until we get our money,” stated Kamau.

He said the stalemate in education sector has affected the association directly noting that their profits have declined.

Kamau said some book sellers have been sued by their major suppliers while others have been threatened with auction of their personal properties.

“We borrow money from banks and other financial institutions which have sued some of our members over non-payment. It is the government causing these predicaments,” he said.

He called for dialogue between the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) and teachers in solving the standoff which is currently in court.
