Forget pay increase, Kaimenyi tells teachers

30 June 2015, 17:06 William Korir

Nairobi - Teachers are best served to forget the pay increase awarded by the Industrial Court, Education CS Jacob Kaimenyi has said.

Teachers were Tuesday given the news of their lives after being told  that they would earn an immediate pay increment of between 50% and 60%, the Industrial Court ruled.

The court ordered the government pay teachers the increment in a ruling Tuesday, one that has left teachers and their unions celebrating.

The increment is due from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2017 and takes effect immediately, Judge Nduma Nderi ruled. 

Judge Nderi also confirmed that allowances that had been offered to teachers by the Teachers Service Commission, including leave, house and commuter allowances also be levied.

However, Kaimenyi says that the government will contest the ruling.

" We will contest the ruling as soon as possible. The ruling fails to take many factors on board and we will address that," he told News24 after the ruling.

The decision will likely be met with derision from teachers union leaders who have for a long time fought for Kaimenyi to be kicked out of office.

Kenya National Union of Teachers KNUT leadership earlier lauded the labour court for the ruling, with Secretary General Wilson Sossion leading other leaders in celebration outside the court.

" This is a great day for Kenyan teachers but it is as much as they deserve," Sossion said.
