Children unruly as Teacher's strike continues
05 September 2012, 11:35
Schools going children opted to storm Kitale streets on the second day of a countrywide teachers strike interrupting traffic.
The children since yesterday have resolved to the carelessly misconduct of hanging on moving vehicles.
Philip Sichangi, a taxi driver said he nearly knocked a child a long Kenyatta Street when he suddenly jumped from a pick-up he had hanged on.
Motorists advised government to check to address the issue before Kitale witness road madness.
Joseph Juma, a newspaper vendor in Kitale town said he witnessed a sad incident where a motorist resolved to apply an emergency brake on his pick up after being fed up by five children.
Most business people in town fear that the number of street children may increase when the children are left to idle around on the street mingling out with street children.
“One can easily mistake these children for street children.” observed Juma.
Teachers have withdrawn services in and the Trans Nzoia branch KNUT executive secretary Reuben Makhino insists that this will go on until the government address their grievances.
The branch has over 3000 members who are participating in the countrywide strike.
County director of education was not in the office by the time press visited for a comment.
