Fast-track dues for teach­ers and say sorry for de­lay

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

Last week the Pen­sions depart­ment did a com­mend­able job when it told the High Court based in Nakuru that it has started pay­ing re­tired teach­ers their lon­gawaited dues. The Pen­sions di­rec­tor told the court that 400 for­mer teach­ers of the 32,000 re­tired tu­tors rep­re­sent­the first phase of those who will soon re­ceive their money. Since jus­tice David Maraga the court ruled in their favour, the re­tired teach­ers have been waiting for these pay­ments for a long time. The gov­ern­ment should fast-track the other pay­ments and apol­o­gise for the de­lay.
