'Teachers should shelve their interests'
28 June 2013, 11:13
As the teachers’ strike enters the fourth day disrupting learning in public schools, Othaya MP Mary Wambui has pleaded with teachers to engage the government in dialogue over their pay demands.
Speaking at Othaya Catholic Church grounds on Thursday during the constituency education day, Wambui said students are the main losers since they are not getting services as expected.
She pleaded with teachers to shelve their interests and allow the new government to settle down in office so that it can address issues of pay increase in all job sectors.
“The president is just three months old in office and he is still new. Teachers should give him time and am assuring them that their issues will be addressed and their demands met effectively,” said the MP.
Wambui added that she has confidence the Jubilee government will deliver, implement its manifesto and address the plight of all workers in all sectors countrywide.
