In an interview with Chimpreports the KCCA Secondary Schools Inspector Charles Omuria noted that the strike is not timely because it’s for the benefit of only teachers yet the children and parents are losing out.
“The strike is inflicting pain on the innocent parents and children especially candidate students who are remaining with a few days to sits their final exams,” explained Omuria.
The inspector of schools therefore called upon teachers to be patriotic and go back to classes noting that UNATU and Government are in talks to solve the problem.
Teachers vowed not to enter classes before getting their twenty percent salary increment from government as agreed when both parties met.
Government has since lashed out at teachers explaining that the teachers’ salary increment will not be implemented in this financial year.
