University Lecturers Threaten Protest Over Delayed Capitation

Lecturers at public universities in Kenya have issued a threat to protest over the delayed capitation to universities.

The University Academic Staff Union has written a letter to Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu, warning that they will not tolerate any further delays in the release of capitation and salaries.

The letter, signed by the Secretary General of the Union, Constantine Wasonga, states that the union strongly condemns the consistent delays in the payment of capitation and salaries.

Wasonga has explained that the delay has caused embarrassment and disrespect to the academic staff. He warned that if the capitation and salaries are not released immediately, the union will call on all its members to protest.

The lecturers have not been paid even up to the 14th of this month, and this has caused them great inconvenience.

They have expressed their dissatisfaction with the government’s inability to provide them with the funds they need to carry out their academic duties effectively. The delay has caused a lot of uncertainty among the academic staff, and they are worried that their salaries might be delayed even further.

The University Academic Staff Union has been pushing for the government to release the capitation funds to universities on time.

The union has accused the government of failing to honour its commitment to the universities. The lecturers argue that the delay in payment of salaries and capitation has affected their morale and their ability to carry out their duties effectively.

The lecturers have vowed to take action if the government fails to release the funds immediately. The Union has called on all its members to prepare for a protest should the government fail to respond to their demands.

They are determined to ensure that their voices are heard and that the government takes action to address their concerns. The lecturers are calling on the government to take the matter seriously and to provide the necessary funds to ensure that the academic staff are paid on time.
