Uhuru meets KNUT, KUPPET bosses at State House

04 February 2015, 15:34 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has met leaders of teachers unions, in a bid to end the current teachers stalemate in Mandera.

The president met the teachers at State House  following his address to them when he opened an education conference in Nairobi Wednesday.

He called on the teachers unions to give his government time to solve the issues regarding pay and other pending matters.

" I ask teachers to please bear with my government. We are working on it and we know the needs of teachers. We have a plane but they have to bear with us," he said.

According to a State House source, the president had been keen to have the talks with teachers, who have caused a major headache in recent times.

" They were not planned but they are needed," the source said.

They have refused to head back to Mandera, the area where 24 of their colleagues were killed by Al Shabaab militants late last year.

" The level of security is not guaranteed in the north Eastern region and teachers will not go back there unless there are assurances," KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion said Tuesday.

Teachers are also currently in the midst of negotiations with the government on how to solve the current pay dispute.
