Kenya: Teacher strike starting September 1


On Thursday, August 23, the Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) announced it would suspend its upcoming nationwide strike set for September 1 to allow for negotiations. The strike was postponed following extensive talks with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC). According to TSC leaders, both sides agreed to hold a five-day meeting from September 30 to October 5 to address the concerns of the teachers and develop a consensus on how to deal with the issues. It is possible that the strike will be rescheduled if talks break down between Knut and the TSC.


Teachers are denouncing recent policies implemented the TSC, as well as the government's decision to delay scheduled financing meant for primary and secondary schools.


Individuals in Kenya are advised to monitor the situation and avoid any potential public gatherings as a precaution.
