Teachers, TSC urged to embrace dialogue to avert strike

14 October 2014, 15:23 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - The impasse between teachers and their employer, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) will negatively affect learning in schools.

A Nairobi businessman, Anthony Maina said the two parties should dialogue in order to avert the looming teachers' strike.

He said if teachers boycott classes, learning will be paralyzed given that national examinations are set to begin and students are preparing for the same.

“They should negotiate and discuss reasonably the issues affecting the education sector. National examinations should not be disrupted by the teachers’ strikes," said Maina adding that the strike should be aborted.

He spoke after donating a 51-seater school bus to Birithia Girls Secondary school in Othaya constituency.

Maina who is also the school’s Board of Management (BOM) chairman said he donated the bus worth KES.6.1 million following numerous complaints by students.

He said the bus was purchased following a golf tournament that he hosted in Nairobi and after friends, parents and other stakeholders contributed.

The school with a population of more than 400 girls and which is associated with the Catholic Church has never had a vehicle since its establishment in 1990s.

The bus was also an achievement to the community living around the school, according to Maina, since they can also hire it when travelling to events.
