Police thwart lecturers demonstrations

0 556

Public universities lecturers were today taken off the streets by police during their procession to the ministry of education offices.

UASU officials however protested the move by the police saying they had no rights to prevent their peaceful procession since they had given a notice to the relevant authorities.

The lecturers from various universities in the country wanted the education CS to address the negotiation agreements between them and the government.

UASU secretary General Constantine Wasonga has denied claims of classes going on in public universities saying it is a scheme by vice chancellors to extort school fees from students.

He has said that the Ministry of education has incompetent officials and the strike is far from ending until they feel their quest has been quenched.
