Mututho wants Kenyans to fundraise and pay teachers

22 September 2015, 16:02

Nakuru - National Authority for Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (Nacada) chairman, John Mututho has proposed that all employed Kenyans pay a levy of KES 200 each to raise money to pay striking teachers.

Mututho says that all Kenyans should come on board and show their solidarity with teachers.

“All of us, including me and teachers, should help the government to solve the current crisis. I propose the government introduce a levy of KES 200 to every employed Kenyan,” Mututho said.

Speaking Tuesday morning in Nakuru town, the former Naivasha MP said that Kenya should borrow from Europe where employed citizens are deducted an education levy to sustain the education sector.

“In Europe, they have an education levy which is paid the way we pay NHIF and NSSF. This will ensure that the government raises enough money to pay teachers,” added Mututho.

According to the Nacada chairman, the current labour force in Kenya can raise up to about KES 30 billion per year to pay teachers.

The proposal comes at a time when the government has pronounced that it does not have enough finances to pay teachers the 50-60 percent pay increase awarded by the court.

Teachers have vowed not to report back to work until they receive the increase.
