Sossion rules out possibility of calling off strike

21 September 2015, 12:08 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Secretary General, Wilson Sossion has maintained that the teachers’ strike won’t be called off, even as President Uhuru Kenyatta said the pay rise was unsustainable.

In his response to President Kenyatta’s address to the nation on the ongoing teachers’ strike, Sossion said withdrawing the strike will be encouraging impunity and anarchy in Kenya.

“The government should respect the court order and pay teachers. They took us to court in the first place and now they are not accepting the outcome of the case,” Sossion said.

He said the pay rise was their constitutional right and that the President had been misadvised on the issue.

“Teachers are mismanaged in Africa and the President’s sentiments that we are the paid highly were not factual. Whoever is drafting the speech for the President is misleading him,” Sosssion said.

He threatened to sue the Cabinet Secretary for Labour, Education, and Treasury, together with their Principal Secretaries for contempt of court.
