President interfering in teachers' pay rise case

29 September 2015, 10:20

Nairobi - The Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) has accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of interfering in the pay rise appeal by the TSC.

The President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Kihara Kariuki is also said to have influenced the case proceedings following instructions from the Head of State.

KNUT, who have applied to have the judges handling the case changed, allege that the President is determined to overturn the Labour court judgment that awarded teachers 50-60 percent pay rise.

Justices Jamilla Mohamed, Mohamed Warsame and Sankale ole Kantai had ordered the TSC to award teachers the pay rise, The Standard reports, but the Executive allegedly replaced the bench when the case came up for hearing last week in order to have the judgment overturned.

On Monday, KNUT appeared at the Milimani Law court seeking a clear interpretation of Friday’s ruling that suspended the teachers’ strike for 90 days, but the presiding judge, Judge Nelson Abuodha did not turn up for the hearing.

The case continues Tuesday.
