Why ODM boss wants CS Amina Mohamed to resign

Amina was moved from Foreign Affairs early this year, to the Education Ministry.

The lawmaker, who is also the Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee of the National Assembly, has said that the CS has messed up the education docket, after the exit of Dr Fred Matiang'i.

The legislator mentioned that the CS, in the wake of the prolonged lecturers' strike, has failed to meet the expectations of Kenyans unlike when she was in the Foreign Affairs ministry.

"We will not allow the minister to mess with the education sector. If she can’t manage it, she better ask for assistance then quit,” the MP said.

He added: "Her performance so far is below par. The strike has persisted for the months she has been in office. Sadly, there is no indication that the strike is ending any soon.”

The sentiments by Wandayi comes on the heel of a bloated meeting, after the Universities Academic Staff Union (Uasu) on Monday dismissed the 1.75 per cent basic salary increase for four years and zero per cent raise on house allowance deal.

The counter-offer that was tabled by the Inter-Public Universities Councils Consultative Forum (IPCCF) negotiating team chairman Isaac Mbeche further indicated that lecturers will get an annual basic salary increment of 0.435 per cent.
