Thursday September 24, 2015 – Deputy President William Ruto has joined former Prime Minister Raila Odinga in calling for the sacking of Devolution Cabinet Secretary, Miss Anne Waiguru, over corruption allegations.

According to a State House insider, Ruto demanded for the suspension of Miss Anne Waiguru over the disappearance of Sh 791 million from the National Youth Service (NYS) and Sh 1.9 billion courtesy the IFMIS scandal.

Ruto argued that if President Uhuru Kenyatta suspended five Cabinet Secretaries due to corruption allegations, he should also suspend Waiguru because all Cabinet Secretaries are equal.

The DP spoke on Sunday after details emerged that Uhuru wanted to appoint new faces in Cabinet and sack the suspended Ministers.

Among the suspended CSs include Lands Cabinet Secretary, Charity Ngilu, Energy CS, David Chirchir, Labour CS, Kazungu Kambi, Agriculture CS, Felix Koskei and Transport CS Engineer, Michael Kamau.

Ruto insisted that Koskei and Chirchir must be reinstated or URP cuts links with the Jubilee Alliance.

Ruto also insisted that if the two were dropped from the Cabinet, then Waiguru had to be suspended to give room for

for investigations into alleged fraud and theft at the NYS.

Kuppet snubs pay talks with TSC

Two teachers’ unions are divided on meeting with the Teachers Service Commission to discuss court orders that directed they be paid higher salaries.

The Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) attended the meeting at TSC headquarters in Upper Hill, Nairobi, on Wednesday but the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) kept off.

“Kuppet was invited by TSC for a meeting this (Wednesday) morning at 8am which we have declined to attend,” union Secretary-General Akelo Misori said in a statement.

Kuppet officials said they did not see the need to attend the meeting as the court order is clear, and accused TSC of “engaging in tactics to delay the salary increase”.

After meeting the TSC, Knut Secretary-General Wilson Sossion asked the National Assembly to push the Treasury to release the money by midnight, August 31.

STRIKE

The TSC, on the other hand, urged teachers not to go on strike when schools reopen next week as negotiations over their salaries go on.

The teachers’ employer had invited the two unions for a meeting after the Supreme Court declined to stop the enforcement of a lower courts’ orders that required it to pay teachers a 50-60 per cent pay raise.

The teachers expect to be paid the higher salaries as the appeal filed by the TSC is heard by the Court of Appeal.

Treasury PS Kamau Thugge said the country should brace itself for tough options in raising the Sh17 billion required to pay teachers following the Supreme Court ruling.
