CORD to storm Harambee House in bid to force Uhuru pay teachers

23 September 2015, 17:31 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The CORD coalition will storm Harambee House next week in a bid to force President Uhuru Kenyatta pay striking teachers.

The Deputy Leader of the coalition Kalonzo Musyoka stated Wednesday during a rally at Uhuru Park Nairobi to show solidarity with teachers that there was need to ensure that teachers are paid and that the government adheres to a court order over the pay.

The teachers were awarded a 50/60% payrise by various courts but the government has said it has no money.

Kalonzo states though that there is no time to waste and CORD leaders have now said they will put the President and his team under pressure to pay up.

" We will occupy Harambee Avenue next week on Tuesday and every Tuesday until teachers have been paid," Kalonzo said to cheers by supporters.

He also complained that the President had done his best to diffuse a situation which he feels is straightforward.

" The money is there in other sectors and can be siphoned out to pay teachers," he added.

Whether the march will be allowed is a different scenario as police will likely be keen to not allow the march take place for security reasons.
