Educational Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has made it clear that Universities won't go on strike as earlier stated by University Academic Staff Union (Uasu) officials.
While addressing the press while on his way to monitor how to form one student report to various schools, Magoha said that university dons through his humble self had said that strikes made no sense.
"There shall be no strike because we are learned, people. Am one of the learned dons in this country in case you don't know. and the dons are saying through my humble self that it doesn't make sense going to strike. You go in a strike if you think that the strike is going to get something done faster, " said the CS.
Education CS has however assured the public that the government is willing to pay as it is capable, but only after thorough due diligence and process.
"The government is in the process having negotiated and agreed with the Unions on what is to be paid. The government is capable, able and willing to go ahead and pay after thorough due diligence and process," said Magoha.
This follows a statement from University Academic Staff Union (Uasu) officials, that all public universities are going to strike as from 20th January if the owed sh. 8 billion is not going to be deposited to the unions account by then.
