Nakuru - The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has claimed that top TSC officials and some from the Ministry of Education and Treasury shared the money that was meant to pay teachers their September salaries.
KNUT Nakuru branch chairman, NJau kuria said that TSC has been reluctant to release the September pay for teachers even after orders from the President and the court of appeal because they do not have the money.
Speaking Monday in Nakuru town, Kuria said that officials at the Ministry of Education hatched the plot of sharing the money after the government and courts declared the teachers' strike as unprotected.

"The court of appeal and even the President ordered TSC to pay our September salaries but they have refused. TSC has no money to pay our September salaries because some officials there decided to share the money among themselves," said Njau.
He added: "We know that people at the Ministry of Education and Treasury also benefited and that is why TSC is contesting the order to pay us,'' Njau said and called upon the EACC to investigate top TSC officers and force them to explain where the money meant to pay teachers September salaries went.
