Jaguar wants CORD to give teachers’ solidarity money to NACADA

19 October 2015, 13:05 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - Funds raised through the Teachers Solidarity Mpesa Account by Cord leadership should be spent on rehabilitation of drugs and alcohol addicts in the country, a NACADA official has said.

Charles Njagua, popularly known as Jaguar, who is board member at National Authority for Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA) called upon Cord to release the money they have raised so far to assist drug addicts.

“Am calling upon the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) to give us that money so that we can build rehab centres,” said the popular musician.

Speaking after a burial ceremony in Konyu village in Othaya, Jaguar said teachers have resumed their duties and Cord's idea to raise money to pay them is no longer viable.

In mid-September at the height the month’s long teacher’s strike, Cord leaders during a public rally at Uhuru Park, Nairobi, unveiled an M-Pesa paybill number through which the public could donate money.

Jaguar was appointed by President Uhuru Kenyatta in April as a board member of NACADA.
