Parents protest as strike bites

Learning in government schools was on Wednesday paralysed for the second day as parents threatened to sue the government over the strike.
However, some of the teachers in Murang’a defied the strike and had to be kicked out of class by Kenya National Union of Teachers(Knut) officials.
There was drama in Murang’a Town as Knut officials attempted to flush out teachers at Murang’a Technology Primary School in the afternoon.
The officials accused the tutors of betraying them for failing to join in the strike. But the school headteacher, on learning of the impending action, called the police to restore order.
The teachers hid until the officials left as Knut vowed that no teaching would take place at the school. It was later closed.
