CORD raised 150 not 1.5 million for teachers, Jubilee claims

20 November 2015, 12:41 William Korir

Nairobi - The CORD coalition raised KES 150 million, not 1.5 million in their teachers solidarity campaign, a Jubilee coalition Senator has claimed.

CORD announced Wednesday that they had raised the 1.5 million after two months of having an MPesa line open to help teachers unions fight for a 50/60% payrise.

But Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen instead says that he has enough evidence to show that they collected KES 150 million.

" There is credible information that CORD raised KES 150 Million for teachers.This is contrary to the rumours that they raised KES 1.5M," Murkomen said.

Where the information arose from, he did not state.

Siaya Senator James Orengo stated that the initiative was successful and had seen many Kenyans contribute to the fate of teachers in Kenya.

" It has been successful and we thank all those that have contributed to the success of this great initiative," he stated.

CORD says it will release a statement over the matter in due course.
