It is reprieve for teachers as government decides to pay them their July salaries despite warning from Salaries and Remuneration Commission. Speaking after a follow-up meeting with officials of Kenya National Union of Teachers (TSC), Salaries Remuneration Commission and Teachers Serviceb Commission (TSC) at State House Nairobi, President Uhuru Kenyatta gave the assurance that teachers have agreed to teach during the second and third terms to bring schools up to speed with the time lost. Citing the relevant provisions of the law, President Kenyatta said the teachers’ strike became illegal and unprotected from the time KNUT failed to respect the Industrial Court order and call off the strike.
The President said KNUT agreed to work closely with the government to support the implementation of the laptop Project to ensure the integration of ICT into the education sector. President Kenyatta told trade unions to abide by the Collective Bargaining Agreements and to use the dispute resolution mechanisms before taking industrial action.

He spoke tough on terrorism but on the wider question of runaway insecurity in the country, President Uhuru Kenyatta appeared keen to share or spread the blame around. In his first remarks since the Saturday terror attack in Mandera, President Kenyatta went back to what is now becoming the philosophy of his administration; Usalama Unaanza na Wewe; security begins with you! But as Jane Ngoiri reports, many ordinary Kenyans are increasingly interpreting this philosophy to mean; you’re on your own!Posted in News, Top Headlines | Tagged news | Leave a comment November 26, 2014
Still on insecurity, tens of families and professional workers are stranded in Mandera, wanting to leave due to mounting insecurity, leaving the government in a dilemma. A mass evacuation would present it with an image crisis. It could be deemed the state has lost control of the north. But there is another reason for worry, more so for the residents. Many of those who want out are civil servants and experts in various disciplines, which could badly dent service provision in a region that is still trying to catch up with the rest of the country. Sheila Sendeiyo has that perspective.Posted in News, Top Headlines | Leave a comment November 26, 2014

The Public Investment and Accounts Committee in the Kilifi county assembly is accusing the county government for contracting a private company, Raindrops Limited, to collect revenue on its behalf which, the Committee says, is against the law. Committee Chairman, Duncan Kaingu, presented a session paper in the house demanding a special audit on the revenue collection since privatizing revenue collection had allegedly led to embezzlement of funds. Raindrops has erected cess stations in Malindi, Kilifi North, Kaloleni, Mariakani and Mtwapa and this has elicited reactions from sand harvesters in Magarini sub county who felt the company was over exploiting them.Posted in News, Top Headlines | Tagged Business, news, politics | Leave a comment November 26, 2014
