Kagwe urges KNUT, Govt to end row

09 July 2013, 18:06 Wangui Joseph

As learning in public primary schools continue to be disrupted with the teachers’ strike entering the third week, Nyeri County Senator Mutahi Kagwe has urged teachers and the government to initiate a dialogue to end the row for the sake of the young scholars.

Kagwe said it is flawed that children are wasting a lot of time at home because of the hard-line positions upheld by the two parties in dispute.

The senator stated that the government should know teachers cannot go on strike without reasons whilst teachers should know that government is not declining to meet their demands.

He added that the contentious issue that has seen teachers going on strike every year should be addressed now and a sustainable solution sought.

Kagwe who is also the chairman of the Senate Committee of Education, Information and Technology said each party needs to appreciate each other’s position and compromise.

However, he expressed concerns that the laptop project has been politicized saying the project is necessary to make the country’s economy technology-driven.

He emphasized that programs of moving the country forward technologically cannot be discussed since they are compulsory.
