Nairobi - Kenya National Union of Teachers KNUT lawyer Ahmednassir Abdulahi has quit the teachers pay case.
Abdulahi excused himself from the case Tuesday after the Appeals Court shot down an appeal by KNUT and Abdulahi to have a 5 judge bench appointed by Chief Justice Willy Mutunga be reconstituted.
KNUT had insisted that the bench was compromised and was being micro managed by Mutunga and had asked the judges to opt out of the case.
However they refused and stated that they did not see any logic and evidence behind the move and dismissed it.
Abdulahi thus opted out of the case by principal.
Thus moving forward, the matter on behalf of KNUT will be handled by Lawyers Paul Muite and Kioko Kilukumi.
The Teachers Service Commision TSC has gone to the Appeals Court to protest the 50/60% payrise awarded to teachers by the labour court on June 30 2015.
