Judge fails to show up for teachers strike verdict
28 September 2015, 18:01
Nairobi - The teachers strike looks set to continue with a ruling on the continuing action which was set to be deliberated Monday failing to take place.
Industrial Court Judge Nelson Abuodha was unavailable for the hearing that was to take off at 2.30 PM Monday afternoon at the Milimani Law Courts.
Teachers who had gathered at the court chambers and were left waiting for a number of hours were forced to head home and wait till Thursday.
" The judge will only be available Thursday," Kenya National Union of Teachers boss Mudzo Nzili told teachers.
The meeting Monday was set to deliberate the meaning of a ruling Friday last week in which Abuodha ordered the ongoing teachers strike suspended for 90 days.
Teachers are still on strike pending movement from their unions over the 50/60% payrise effected by the Labour Courts.
The strike is now into its fifth week.
