Duale proposes budget cuts to pay teachers

15 September 2015, 09:28

Nairobi - Majority Leader, Aden Duale has proposed budget cuts in the Parliament, Judiciary and the Executive in a bid to solve the ongoing stalemate in the education sector over teachers pay rise.

Teachers have been on strike for over two weeks after the government failed to implement the 50-60 percent pay rise awarded to them by the Court of Appeal.

Various stakeholders including their employer the TSC, the President and Treasury Cabinet Secretary have however maintained that there is no money to pay teachers.

The TSC has threatened to sack school heads, their deputies and senior teachers in public schools over the impasse, but this has not deterred the teachers who have vowed to press on with their push for higher pay.

According to Daily Nation, Duale has said that since the government does not have the KES 17 billion needed to settle the pay dispute with teachers, the only way to implement the pay rise is by slashing budgets of the three arms of the government.
