Parliament set to investigate lecturers strike

17 March 2014, 22:17 William Korir

Nairobi - Parliament will investigate the ongoing lecturers strike with the aim of finding out the real reason behind the industrial action by university dons.

The parliamentary committee on education will summon university Vice Chancellors with the aim of finding out whether the claims by the University dons are true.

The lecturers are demanding KES 3.7 billion in unpaind salaries and bonuses agreed with the government in a collective bargaining agreement last year.

Through their unions, the lecturers claim that the vice chancellors have refused to release funds already awarded to them by the government.

Sources in the committee say that summons will be offered to the VCs to try end the strike as soon as possible.

It is not yet clear who or when the VCs will be summoned but it has been termed a matter of urgency by members of parliament.

Members of the University unions might also be summoned, the source added.

Parliamentary action was further heightened when the vice chairman of the committee Julius Meli said Sunday that there will likely be action.

When contacted by News24 Monday, he said that there was need to have the matter resolved as quickly as possible.

" I think that we have to deal with this issue as soon as possible because it is taking long and students are suffering, he said.
