KUPPET asks President to intervene in solving teachers’ strike

09 September 2015, 16:21 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) has asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to intervene in solving the standoff between teachers and their employer, Teachers Service Commission (TSC).

KUPPET Nyeri county chairman, Patrick Maina has said the education sector is paralyzed and requires Presidential intervention to salvage it.

“The same way President Uhuru intervened to save Mumias Sugar he should also intervene to solve the impasse between the TSC and teachers. We have incompetent people heading the education sector,” said Maina.

Speaking during a press conference at the union offices in Nyeri town, Maina maintained that teachers will not resume work until their demands are addressed.

He said school principals are not taking directives from the TSC but from their unions as he accused TSC of intimidation.

“Government must respect court orders since even the general public is in our support. We have been oppressed for too long,” he stated.

He accused TSC commissioners of being selfish claiming that last year they awarded themselves 100 percent salary increase.

“There are teachers earning KES 16 000 while a commissioner who has very minimal duties is earning hundreds of thousands. Fairness must be applied from the top and end discriminations,” he added.
