Private schools in Nakuru given ultimatum
07 September 2012, 12:51
Private schools in Nakuru County have been given up today evening to close their schools and join their colleagues in public failure to which they will be flushed out on Monday.
Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Nakuru Branch secretary general Kuria Njau have retaliated that, all teachers have been underpaid and failure of private schools to join them is ridicule.
He warned that, those directors and school managers intimidating and threaten teachers will face the wrath of the KNUT officials as nothing will be left to chances unless the government and private sectors pay teachers to restore their dignity.
Nakuru County members of parliament have been put in the receiving end after the teachers declared withdrawal of their support for failing to contribute and defend their plight in parliament.
The secretary general Mr. Kuria decried the hypocrisy the leaders have portrayed and later comes calling for teachers support for their political mileage therefore warned not to interfere with the teachers.
All Nakuru KNUT teachers gathered at the KNUT Nakuru branch office in solidarity with the rest while the head teachers who were doing their exams joined them.
Kuria said the strike will be a revolution where all stakeholders will be called on board until the government bowed to their demands which have been denied to them for a longtime.
