KNAPs calls on the govt to pay retired teachers

17 May 2012, 12:22 Anthony Muriuki

The Kenya National Association of Parents(KNAP) has called on the government to act speedily on a court order to have teachers who retired between 1997 and 2007 paid their retirement benefits.

Speaking in Meru today, KNAP Deputy National Chairman Mr John Kireria said that despite a court ruling ordering the Teachers Service Commission(TSC), the teachers have not yet received their pensions and retirement benefits.

''The teachers went to court to fight for their gratuity and pension dues, won the case after which TSC appealed against the ruling and lost the appeal. Until now,this has not been done.''He said.
Mr Kireria said many teachers had approached the association to help them recover their unpaid pensions.
'' Many of these teachers are now aged and sickly and are not able to fed for their families. It is regrettable that some of them have died without getting what they fought for and yet they helped to better the salaries and allowances for teachers.''Kireria said.

He said that the government needs to ensure that teachers are paid all their dues in this year's budget allocations.
'' We cannot expect a known democratic government not to honor a court ruling that was made a long time ago. If anybody is out to let down president Kibaki's government then the government machinery should let him know.''He said.
TSC had challenged the court’s ruling saying that the teachers who had retired in 1997 could only ya benefit from the first increment and not from the other consequent phases.
