Retired teachers demand their pay
17 July 2012, 15:30
The Retired Teachers of 1997 group have issued the Attorney General with 7 days ultimatum to give out a directive order for their KES3.34 billion which is part of their pension to be released to them, failure to which they will camp outside his office.
Speaking to members of the press last Saturday, David Mwenje who is the Chairman of the 52,338 members said that the AG Githu Muigai was toying around with the member’s money by not not issuing an order to the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) for the money to be released which they ought to have been given after a court order from last December.
“Githu is our latest stumbling block after our money was ordered to be released by the court but still the AG is not giving any sort of directive to Teachers Service Commission TSC to realize the money and time is first running out,” the agitated Mwenje said.
The teachers Secretary Giddraph Kimatta pointed out that close to ten elderly members had passed away last month without earning or receiving their money yet they knew there was some money to be given to them by the TSC.
Giddraph also questioned how the AG passed the credibility test to hold the highest office of the law yet he is not helping the normal mwananchi in getting justice served to them?
“It is a sad thing to see our AG who is supposed our beacon of hope is not helping us I wonder how he was appointed to that top office” posed Giddraph.
