Article 3(1) of the Constitution is clear that everyone has a cardinal duty to uphold the new law
Events which are taking place in our country at this point in time call for serious soul searching. From the slaughter fields of Tana River to the strikes that have rocked our nation, a perilous trend is emerging. This sends a very dangerous signal that all is not well with our national psyche.
We cannot gainsay the havoc which the ongoing strikes have wreaked especially on innocent young candidates whose future aspirations have now been put in abeyance.
We hope that the teachers are going to consider the latest Government’s offer by playing less hard ball for the sake of thousands of dreams which are about to be shattered. Both parties must be prepared to cede ground in order to advance the course of justice for pupils and students in our schools. A sense of duty and purpose must always guide the actions of workers in our nation.
