Nairobi - The Teachers Service Commision TSC has finally released teachers' September salaries.
The Commision announced Tuesday that the salaries had been released, to end a two month impasse between the Commision and teachers unions.
The TSC had said that it would not pay, since teachers had not worked for a 5 week period in September during which they were on strike.
Teachers unions however went to President Uhuru Kenyatta to ask him to intervene in the matter, which he did and stated that they should be paid their dues in the spirit of reconciliation.
The TSC though, had threatened to go back to court but after last minute talks, were dissuaded from doing so.
" Majority of teachers have received their salaries today while others will get theirs in the course of Wednesday," a source at TSC told News24.
The move will be a relief to teachers, some of who had taken debts to cover for the missing September salaries.
