Teachers in fresh September strike threat

19 July 2012, 12:55

Nairobi – The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has warned that it will disrupt the opening of schools in September unless the government starts negotiations on a 300 percent pay increase for teachers and fulfils a deal reached in 1997.

Deputy Secretary General Savior Nyamu who spoke to journalists at the KNUT headquarters on Wednesday said that the government has until the end of August to act.

“We want the payslip of a teacher in August to show his pay and a house allowance that is 50 percent of his salary. We are also telling teachers to be prepared, that we are ringing a bell and when schools open in September. We will use our machinery to ensure that we are not misused,” said Nyamu.
