KNUT threatens to oust Jubilee over 'empty promises'

19 August 2016, 12:10 Elvis Wasike

Eldoret - Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) has threatened to vote out the Jubilee government if they don't increase teachers' pay.

According to the KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion, the Jubilee government should increase teachers pay by 500% if they want their support in the 2017 General elections."

We are tired of empty promises. This time we'll only support people who have our problems at heart, and we are poised to field our own candidates," he said.

Speaking at St Elizabeth Catholic Church in Kapseret constituency, Uasin Gishu County, Sossion said the government should pay up teachers before the next general election or forget teachers' support.

“As teacher, we have been very patient. We demand that our dues must be paid before electioneering period,” he said.

The Secretary General rubbished the recent hiring of 7,000 teachers saying it's a drop in the ocean.

"TSC should consult teachers unions before hiring. We need over 100,000 teachers; 7,000 is nothing," he said.
