MPs: Teachers’ strike was politically maneuvered

03 July 2013, 14:11 Wangui Joseph

The teachers’ strike that was declared illegal by an Industrial Court on Monday was politically maneuvered, Kieni and Turkana Central Members of Parliament said.

Simon Mathenge (Kieni) and John Lopede Nakala (Turkana Central) said the Majority Leader’s move to divert funds was also a political move with intentions to downfall the government and create perception that it was not working.

The MPs were speaking at Kimahuri location in Kieni constituency where they said the Jubilee government is ready to honour its pledges as highlighted in their manifesto.

They were accompanied by Murang’a County Women Representative Sabina Wanjiru who lamented that children were suffering innocently due to the strike.

Wanjiru also said the laptop project will not benefit only the standard one pupils since it is a long term project beneficial to all.

They made the remarks while offering their donations to more than 40 families whose houses were razed down by fire Saturday night.

Mathenge donated KES 50 000 cash, food stuffs and personal effects and promised to continue supporting them until they settle down again.

Kieni parliamentary seat loser Njoroge Wainanina also donated packages of foodstuffs.

Property worth thousands of shillings was reduced to ashes and nothing was saved from the flames.

No life was lost during the incident, and neither were critical injuries recorded.

The cause of the fire was not immediately established according to police reports; investigations into the incident have been launched.
