  • Thank you Catherine for the good background to the teachers’ never-ending pay deal. At least we now have one politician who is being honest, or is it ‘coz he is now out of power? All the same, the message still remains very clear for the government: honour your promise please and let our children prepare for exams in peace.

    So KNUT is going to push this outgoing government into promising another deal for them for which the incoming government will be unable to fund? Haven’t we learnt anything here? If there’s no money, future promises will count for squat!
    Ask for reasonable increases that can be effected now, rather than 300% which we all know you’ll never get!

  • Teachers should stop playing political games while pretending to be advancing their cause. Infact, this bado mapambano whatever of theirs betrays their political inclination! Of course, when elections set in is only when they start their blackmailing. KNUT leadership is certainly under control of merchants of deceit, who seem to believe that life would really be rosy if they led the country. Either KNUT devests itself from lords of deceit, or it will never get what it wants. By the way, asking for 300% increment is tottally off the mark. They should demand reasonable increments that make sense. Even this business of talking about MPs’ huge salaries sounds silly. Why cant they join parliamentary politics enmass to enjoy those huge salaries?

    There is no honesty here. If the government knew they could not fulfill what they had agreed, they should have resigned so that another government would have tried. But not agreeing on what they knew they could not provide. This is insincerety of the highest order. Can Kamotho tell us how many times the cost of living has risen. Give teachers their due. Is correct to wire money out of the country just to return it to serve personal interests when the society is suffering? Teachers must be paid their dues as agreed. Let the Government fulfill what was agreed by their predicessors.
