Learning Resumes In Egerton University

24 September 2012, 14:16 Steve Wambugu

Staff at Egerton University in Njoro resumed duty on Monday morning after the line unions reached a consensus with the government last week.

A spot check at the university by News24Kenya user revealed that lecturers and non teaching staff reported to work as early as 8.30 am although normal learning is yet to start owing to absenteeism of students.

The chairman of Egerton University - Universities non teaching staff union- UNTESU Kiogora Mureithi said that the out come of negotiations was welcomed by all staff although it came late after students had suffered.

“We welcome the negotiations although they have come a bit late when a lot of students have suffered should the government listen to us earlier all this would not have happened.”   Said Kiogora

Kiogora said that they would struggle to make up for the time lost adding that the 33.1% increase on basic salary and 14.2% increase in house allowance will work well for their members considering the current hard economic times .

Kiogora urged the rest of the students who haven’t report back to school to do so within the shortest time possible before the lecturers embark on a normal teaching at the campus.
