Uhuru silence on teachers disappointing, Raila says

11 September 2015, 08:02 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leader Raila Odinga says the billions allocated to the National Youth Service NYS should be used to pay teachers.

He also complained over the silence from President Uhuru Kenyatta over the matter.

Teachers were allocated a 50/60% pay-rise by various courts, with the Supreme Court also rubber-stamping the matter but the government has so far refused to pay saying it has no money.

According to Raila, the move by the government is impunity.

" This is impunity and the government, by ignoring court orders is disrespecting the Constitution," he said in a press statement.

He also added that the silence by the President has also been disappointing.

" The President has been silent and we are all very disappointed with it. What is he not saying? Why is he pretending that he is busy?," he added.

Teachers are still on strike over the lack of pay, and have vowed to stay on until they are paid their dues.

The government has so far stated that it will discipline teachers that have been on strike and have already sent out 5,000 letters to teachers accused of being in breach of their code of ethics.
