KNUT criticises government laptop project as teachers strike looms

03 January 2014, 08:00 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Kenya National Union of Teachers KNUT has criticized the government over misplaced priorities as it threatens to go on strike over teachers promotions.

This comes after the union revealed that the government was unwilling to meet its demand to have teachers promoted.

The government and KNUT had agreed that teachers would be promoted January 1, 2014 but the government has declared that it has no money for the process.

And with president Uhuru Kenyatta stating that the highly debated laptop project will go on this term, the teachers are cryinig foul over what they term misplaced priorities by the government.

" Teachers have over the years been mistrated and we will not accept it, especially with the govermnment fully aware of the current situation, KNUT secretary general Wilson Sossion said.

" We agreed to an amicable solution last year and unless we get a solid explanation from government, our hand will be forced.

" There are claims that there is no money to fund promotions yet projects such as the laptop one which costs billions of shillings are being rolled out.

" You can't expect not to heed teachers concerns and expect them to take care of the welfare of students, he added.

The government has admitted that it can't fund promotion of teachers and says it will have to sit down with the union to discuss terms.
