Egerton Universities joins the Strike

07 September 2012, 13:56 Steve Wambugu

Learning was paralyzed at the Egerton University in Njoro after staff joined in the Nationwide public universities strike that kicked off

All staff affiliated to the universities non teaching staff union-UNTESU, universities academic staff union UASAU and Kenya  domestic
Hotel educational institutions and allied workers union-assembled at the university’s graduation  square  as early as 8 am
chanting anti government slogans.

UNTESU national organizing secretary earnest Wayaya said that normal operations in all public universities would only resume once the
government implements two collective bargaining  agreements for the period  2010-2012 and 2012-2014.

They said that it was shameful for vice chancellors to push for their own salary  and allowances increments yet those who work tirelessly to
ensure smooth running of the institutions they manage earn peanuts.

Egerton university uasu chairman Dr. Robert Shivalo said that their union has held several meeting s with higher education minister prof. Margaret Kamar but she did not show any goodwill to fulfilling her promises.

He said that they will not be intimidated by any one while in the process of fighting for their  rights.

His UNTESU counterpart Kiogora Mureithi said that poor pay among university staff had reduced them to mere servants as if the
government does not care for its people.

He vowed that they will not allow any operations to continue in all campuses and affiliate colleges.

The strike kicked off as second to fourth year students started returning from vacation while first year students went about their businesses alone.
