Teachers defy govt directive to end strike

10 September 2012, 07:29

Nairobi – The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) and the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) on Sunday defied government’s directive to end strike and vowed to continue the boycott.

KNUT Chairman Wilson Sossion asked teachers not to report to work on Monday but instead congregate at their respective KNUT branches for prayers.

“I am not sure whether government has really read between the lines, it looks like the government is continuing not to read between the lines and we would like to say the week which has ended was just but a rehearsal for the real strike. We are now getting into the phase of the major strike and major action,” he said while revealing that retired teachers could join in the strike in the coming week.
