Return home to solve our crisis, Busia teachers tell Uhuru

KNUT Busia and  Teso branches  today  told President Uhuru Kenyatta to
cut short his trip to Paris in France  to come and  address the plight
of teachers.
” Where is Uhuru? We know Kenyans voted for you  and the Supreme Court
ruled in your favour when CORD coalition  challenged your results and
validity in office.
Come back home and address our plight and that of the people of Kenya.
We want you to declare teachers’ strike a national disaster and redeem
your image  which is being soiled by your own agencies,” Busia KNUT
Secretary General  Mark Oseno said at the KNUT headquarters.
Oseno told President Uhuru  to stop merrying around  and  save the
situation. ” Our President tell the Teachers Service Commission
teachers are not sycophants. Sack TSC chair Lydia Nzomo for reducing
you to a heckler,” Oseno said.
They dared  Nzomo to sack them. They later marched to the TSC County
Director to demand for the sack letter as directed by Nzomo where they
were joined by County Executive Committee member in charge of
Education, Azida Ali.
The teachers carried the placards some reading: Teachers create
professionals Pesa Pap!, Nzomo!!! You are not the face of the
teachers, No 50-60 per cent increment no class and TSC and a.k.a SEREM
must respect the court system.
Speaking at the County Government offices where  CEC for Education
Azida Ali led them, Knut chairman  Nyumba Musundi said slavery number
one in the country are teachers. ” The government is treating us like
second rate citizens.
Addressing the teachers, Deputy Governor Kizito Wangalwa said the
government should pay the teachers and the issue of budgets to be
addressed later.
Speaking on behalf of  Governor Sospeter Ojaamong, Wangalwa said the
County Government was in solidarity with teachers to them paid before
they return to class.
Azida said teachers should be paid their dues as ruled by the supreme
court saying they have the right to be paid their money.
In Amagoro, KNUT Teso branch led by Secretary General, Deogratias
Owaya led protestors to the DEO’s offices where they dared the
education office to sack them.
