Teachers vow that they will not take pay cuts

26 March 2014, 11:11 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Teachers have told the Salaries and Remuneration (SRC) that they will be asking for more pay instead of taking a pay cut.

Speaking during a sitting in Nyeri, Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Nyeri county executive secretary Mutahi Kahiga said teachers are not ready for the pay cut decision.

“Teachers of this nation will take a pay cut on their dead bodies,” the incensed Mutahi said.

He stated that some top government officials enjoy huge salaries compared to teachers and majority of public civil servants in lower cadres.   

Mutahi added that the problem of the wage bill does not lie with low income earners but on the high income earners.

He urged the SRC to treat all workers equally instead of giving others special treatment.

He said public services have not improved despite many public officers and administrators both in national and county governments.

Mutahi argued that Kenyans voted for the new constitution with hopes that their lives would improve but to the contrary the cost of living soared up.

In regard to increment of levies and taxes by the county governments, Mutahi said small scale entrepreneurs have opted to abandon business which is not a wise move economically.
