KNUT officials blame Ruto for sabotage

01 July 2013, 15:48 Isaac Wanjekeche

Bungoma County Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has called off deputy president's order that teachers return to class.

Speaking on their fifth day of strike in Bungoma, the Executive Secretary Ken Nganga has criticized the move by William Ruto terming it as betrayal and high handedness.

The union's boss was responding to Ruto's sentiments for ceasefire in the strike as the state considers engaging into dialogue with teachers.

''We are very sorry to hear our deputy president supporting the end of the teachers' strike terming it as illegal. No strike has ever been legal in the country,'' said Nganga.

''The deputy president who was the former president Moi's think tank in the historic strike back in 1997 recalls clearly that teachers' voice can never be ignored,'' He added.

The Bungoma North Union Secretary Aggrey Namisi shared the sentiments terming the union's top brass leadership as impeccable.

''We are aware there are moves to compromise our top brass officials on our behalf to soften stand. We have enough faith in our officials,'' observed Namisi.

The teachers further called off the move by court to nullify the strike terming it as inconsequential.

''We are not moved by that ruling because it's impartial and with no implication on our strike. We are going to hold the mantle high till the government heeds its provisions in the 1997 agreement concerning our pay increment,'' said the teachers in their memorandum read in part to the Bungoma County commissioner Maalim Mohamed.

The union has blamed the Jubilee government for failing to honor its campaign promise of 'walking the talk'.
