Government urged to hold fruitful talks with the striking workers

18 September 2012, 17:27 Robert Kibet

Foundation for Women Rights Kenya has called on the Government to resolve the ongoing nationwide strike involving teachers, lecturers and doctors in a bid to save suffering Kenyans.

While addressing the media at the organization offices in Nakuru, foundation’s chairperson Susan Chesyna expressed on how the government is handling the ongoing nationwide strike.

Chesyna said teachers have for decade been paid peanuts in terms of allowances, quoting payment of Ksh. 3,000 as house allowances to teachers as unfit.

“We are shocked to see how the government pays teachers such an amount in form house allowances, whereas it understands that people pay a lot as rent rates is hiked”, said Chesyna.

She asked the government to undertake serious and fruitful talks with the striking workers in a bid to save lives of patients, as well as education of pupils as well as high school and university students.

At the same time, Chesyna said university students might engage in criminal activities and consumption of alcohol and drug abuse due to idleness.
