, NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 6 – The Appellate court will on Friday make a determination on the legality of the ongoing strike by University lecturers.
It will come even as striking dons at the University of Nairobi were not paid.
The lecturers moved to the appellate court after the Employment and Labour Relations Court ruled that their strike is unlawful and Justice Onesmus Makau ordered them to go back to work.
Earlier this week, lecturers, led by the Universities Academic Staff Union Constantine Wasonga, met University Education Principal Secretary Japheth Ntiba, who also insisted that they call off the strike.
He asserted that the government can only make an offer to the lecturers after the conclusion of the job evaluation.
On Wednesday, Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed said that 25 out of the 31 public universities had submitted their data for auditing.[cresta-social-share]
