A strike by lecturers at Kenya’s 31 public universities looks set to continue, according to a report by Capital News.
Teaching staff nationwide walked out on 1 November over pay, in the third strike to hit universities this year.
Although the National Treasury approved the release of KSh5.2 billion (£37.7 million) to enhance the remuneration of staff earlier this month, a union boss said that no meetings about returning to work will take place until institutions receive the money.
Constantine Wasonga, secretary general of the University Academic Staff Union, said: “We will not attend any negotiation meeting until money is wired to university accounts.”
A collective bargaining agreement reached in March that covers 2013-17 resulted in government awarding lecturers a 17.5 per cent increase on basic salary and a 3.9 per cent increase on housing allowance after a 44-day strike earlier this year, according to a separate report.
