KNUT dismisses Uhuru statement as null and void

05 February 2015, 16:08 William Korir

Nairobi - The Kenya National Union of Teachers KNUT has dismissed President Uhuru Kenyatta's statement about the state of pay for teachers.

Chairman Mudzo Nzili said Thursday that the statement by Uhuru, which asked teachers to be patient to receive a pay increase was merely political and does not hold water.

He said that the statement by Uhuru, which said that the government has no money to pay teachers at the moment was null and void since the matter is already in court.

" The statement was political. We will choose to look at it that way," he said.

" The matter is being deliberated in court. There are many contradictions. The president says there is no money and the Teachers Service Commision says that there is money but there is need for a review of teachers and their positions," he added.

The Industrial Court is currently deliberating the current impasse between the TSC and teachers, and is expected to draw a way forward.

Teachers are currently back in class despite not getting their basic salaries and allowances increased after the court asked them to get back to class in good will as it solved the matter.

Teachers are demanding a 300% increase in basic salaries and allowances, perks which the TSC has said cannot pay.
