And now on the ongoing teachers Strike…
One: Whoever is representing you is bad news. Whenever he opens his mouth, he goes away with thousands of your sympathisers.
Two: Teachers are not the worst paid in public service, there are others who earn muuuch less, but they have improvised survival tactics through side hustles.
Three: There are millions of unemployed qualified teachers, who would do anything to be in your shoes right now.
Four: When you chose the 3rd term to strike, who are you punishing, between the Government and the candidates?
Five: As it is now, we are ALL persevering and enduring to be Kenyans, even those in private ventures. Infact we would like to go on strike, only we are wondering where to direct our grievances.
Six: We feel your pain, but can’t understand why you can’t feel our pain. Do you sincerely think Uhuru’s kids schools at Ng’onyi Primary School where I schooled? Or could you be imagining Kaimenyi’s kids are home now because Dongo Kundu primary School is closed?
Seven: All of you being learned, we assume your increament is quite much, where would you suggest the money come from before the budget?
Eight: We all agree you have valid claims, but your way of presenting it wreaks of selfishness.
Nine: We support your salary increaments, therefore go back to class and teach.
Ten: Resignition is still an option, consider it as well if nothing seems to be moving. Have a fruitful week
