Government withdraws from Supreme Court case over teachers pay

08 September 2015, 19:04 William Korir

Nairobi - The government has withdrawn from a case at the Supreme Court seeking to query the ruling granting teachers a 50/60% pay-rise.

The TSC had gone back to the court asking to have a review of the ruling ordering the Teachers Service Commision to effect immediately the pay-rise.

But in a move in which the TSC agreed that it had no grounds to pursue the matter and asked that it be withdrawn.

" We write to withdraw the notice of motion dated August 31, 2015. As the motion has not been served, the only logical order is for the motion to be marked as withdrawn with no orders as to costs," TSC lawyer Stella Ruto said.

The TSC had earlier insisted that teachers remain in class awaiting orders from the Supreme Court judge Jackton Ojwang.

However, Ojwang did decline to suspend payment of the hiked salaries and also refused to call the strike illegal, only terming it unprotected.

Teachers haver been on strike since last week and the new move will likely indicate that the Commision has finally admitted defeat in the matter over the teachers salaries.

Unions representing teachers have already stated that they will not allow their members go back to class until they are paid their dues.
