Respect court orders, teachers tell President

14 September 2015, 07:44

Nairobi - Teachers’ unions, KNUT and KUPPET have told President Uhuru Kenyatta to respect court orders that awarded them 50-60 percent pay rise and called for closure of all schools until their demands are met.

KUPPET also said that the President and his Deputy, William Ruto should step down if they cannot handle the teachers’ grievances.

The teachers unions also vowed to continue with the strike until the government pays them, Daily Nation reports, even if it takes as long as one year.

The President said Friday that the government does not have enough money to pay teachers, with his deputy directing the teachers to report back to work on Monday.

However, the opposition leader Raila Odinga and a section of MPs have maintained that the government has enough money to implement the KES 17 billion pay rise.
