Despite rumours, CORD funds reach teachers unions

19 November 2015, 14:56 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The funds raised by the CORD coalition have been sent to teachers unions despite reports to the contrary.

The coalition raised KES 1.5 million for teachers during their strike in September, which they said would be used to help run logistics for the unions whilst they were chasing improved pay for teachers.

Wednesday, Coalition leaders stated that the funds had been sent to teachers accounts but according to Kenya National Union of Teachers KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion, he wa snot aware that the funds had been sent.

" I am not aware but we will check and get back to you," he told News24.

He also stated that if so, he would happily acknowledge receipt of the money and thank the coalition and those who supported the initiative.

" It was a good initiative and we will be thankful," he added.

CORD later on confirmed that they had sent in two cheques, which they showed pictures of.

The money was raised by CORD supporters following a plea by leader Raila Odinga to help the teachers move forward in court cases to help them argue out a 50/60% pay increase.
