KUPPET: Cotu, media and Kenyans have betrayed teachers

23 September 2015, 11:48

Nakuru - The Kenya union of post primary education teachers (Kuppet) has said that striking teachers might be forced to swallow the humble pie and return to school because all odds have turned against them.

KUPPET Nakuru branch chairman, Simon Kambo said that the whole country has turned against teachers and even the courts seem to have changed tune in the ongoing tussle between teachers and their employer, TSC.

Speaking Wednesday at KUPPET Nakuru offices, Kambo said that if things continue as they are, teachers might be forced to bow to public pressure and resume work.

"Teachers have fought the war and won but Kenyans and the government have partnered to forcibly steal the victory from teachers. The courts have the final say but as things appear, even the courts might rule in favour of the government. Teachers must be prepared for anything because if the court orders them to go back to school they will have no otherwise," said Kambo.

Kambo accused the central organisation of trade unions (COTU), media and the Kenyan public of betraying teachers when they needed their full support.

"Over the years, the media and the Kenyan public have been standing with Kenyan teachers but this time round we don't know what happened they all abandoned teachers; I can tell you teachers are feeling betrayed,'' said Kambo.

He said that if teachers are to go back to school without the pay increment, then their morale will be low and will drastically affect performance in schools.
