TUK Lecturers Strike Over delayed Salary

Lecturers from the Technical University of Kenya (TUK) went on strike in the  Nairobi Central Business District (CBD) on Wednesday in protest of their unpaid  salary. The academics were captured on camera marching around the university grounds  while yelling angrily.

The lecturers expressed their annoyance and requested that their dues be paid immediately.The lecturers who are protesting claim that October is almost here and they have not yet received their September salary.One of the academics who was protesting could be heard saying, “We want to know where they took this money that the government gave them for September salary.”

The lecturers claimed that the money had been diverted by the administration of the college to settle the school’s debts. One of the employees said that the government had already paid all universities—including TUK—capitation for the month of September.The staff member stated, “Let nobody fool you into believing that the government has not released capitation. I am aware that the government released double capitation for all public universities last month. Now that October capitation is approaching, they are waiting, and if we are not careful, we will stay in this hole forever.”

The lecturers have now decided to stage demonstrations as a way for them to express their frustrations after first threatening to withhold the results of the students due to the pay delays.

Shortly before a graduation ceremony for students pursuing both a degree and a diploma, protests are taking place.All graduates have already received a message from TUK outlining the prerequisites for the December 19 graduation.
