CORD leaders dress in school uniform to protest teachers pay

23 September 2015, 14:18 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - CORD leaders have dressed in school uniform to protest the lack of pay to teachers by the government.

Led by Kibra MP Ken Okoth, the leaders dressed in the uniform to help sell the plight of students who are now at home due to the strike said that they are doing so to be in solidarity with the underpaid leaders.

The leaders arrived at the Uhuru Park venue of a Wednesday rally to show solidarity with the teachers strike.

" We are dressed in this manner to show teachers that we are together," Okoth said.

Nominated Senator Elizabeth Ongera said that it was time the plight of teachers was noted.

" Teachers have to be paid. It has taken years for them to be listened to and this is the time for them to be paid," she added.

The rally is to be held from 2 PM local time.

The government has said it cannot afford the KES 17 billion extra needed to pay teachers a 50/60% payrise.

Teachers have thus gone on strike to ensure that they are paid their dues, which has now lasted 4 weeks.
