Jubilee condemns CORD for hijacking teachers’ strike

02 October 2015, 12:29 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Two Nyeri MPs have joined their Jubilee counterparts in condemning the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) for taking advantage of the ongoing teachers strike for their own political gain.

Othaya MP, Mary Wambui and her Kieni counterpart, Kanini Kega have accused the opposition of hijacking the teachers’ pay impasse and using it to gain political mileage.

The two claimed that CORD was using the teachers strike to play populist antiques, saying there was no way Kenyans could be subjected to further taxation to meet the teachers’ pay demands.

Wambui however asked teachers to consider the plight of the many children affected by the strike and resume work as the government looks into their grievances.

She also called on the striking teachers to exercise patience and wait for the economy to improve before their demands can be put into consideration.

On his part, Kega urged the opposition to stop making slanderous comments about the government.
