Teachers ask Kaimenyi to respect court ruling

01 July 2015, 09:32 Makena Laban

Nairobi - Education Cabinet Secretary, Jacob Kaimenyi has been asked by teachers to respect the court ruling that awarded them 60 percent pay rise.

“The government has in the past accused teachers of disregarding the law and they even took some of union leaders to court. Now that we have followed the right procedure and the court has interpreted the law as it is, why are they resisting?” posed Silas Owiti, KUPPET organizing secretary Vihiga County.

This follows a ruling by the industrial court that awarded teachers an immediate pay increment of between 50 and 60 percent.

The court ordered the government to pay teachers the increment, a ruling that has left teachers and their unions celebrating.

“Teachers have fought for this increment since the days Ambrose Adongo was at the helm of the teacher’s union. Let the government implement the ruling as we continue to serve children effectively as they prepare for their national examinations,” said Owiti.

The increment is due from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2017 and takes effect immediately, Judge Nduma Nderi ruled.

Nderi also confirmed that allowances that had been offered to teachers by the Teachers Service Commission, including leave, house and commuter allowances also be levied.
