Raila's plan to fund-raise for teachers the biggest joke of his political life

25 September 2015, 08:02 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Njoro MP, Joseph Kiuna has termed CORD leader Raila Odinga's move to establish a pay bill number to fund-raise for teachers as the biggest joke of his political life.

Kiuna said that Odinga has run out of ideas and cannot offer any solution to the ongoing stalemate between teachers and the government.

He termed CORD's Wednesday solidarity rally a mere public relation act aimed at getting political mileage.

Speaking Thursday in Nakuru town, Kiuna said that the solidarity fund established by CORD will not work and wondered how the money will be paid to teachers since CORD is not their employer.

''Raila made the biggest joke of his political lifetime and it is laughable because one wonders how he intends to pay the money to teachers as he is not their employer. Kenyans should take the solidarity account just like any other joke from Raila," said Kiuna.

Kiuna added that it makes no sense to tell kenyans who pay taxes to go back into their pockets and contribute money to pay striking teachers

"Kenyans have fulfiled their obligation of paying taxes and Raila cannot add another burden on their shoulders by telling them to contribute money to pay teachers who have refused to work," he said.

He called on CORD to offer alternative leadership to the nation instead of creating more problems and unnecessary anxiety.

"CORD cannot offer any solution to teachers and teachers should stop listening to them," he said.
