Lecturers strike
The lecturers are accusing the government of being non-committal in releasing funds meant for their pay rise.

Labor Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yattani has absolved himself from blame over the on-going lecturers’ strike instead blaming lecturers unions of abandoning talks prematurely.

Appealing to the Don’s to resume work and give dialogue a chance, Yattani says the ministry is currently awaiting a court verdict on the legality of the strike and the way forward.
