KNUT vows to go on with September strike


The Kenya National union of Teachers (KNUT) Nairobi branch has backed calls for a teacher’s strike slated for September.

KNUT Nairobi branch chairman Robert Karume says the strike as announced by its secretary general Wilson Sossion will go on if the Teachers Service commission (TSC) does not abolish policies that are unfavourable.

Karume says delocalization and appraisal of teachers was being implemented by TSC without consulting stakeholders in the sector.

Speaking during the KNUT Nairobi branch annual general meeting held at Jamhuri High school Nairobi, he noted that delocalization of teachers has demoralised them and led to poor performance in schools.
