Kenya's Lecturers Strike Over Unfulfilled Pay Deal

Kenyan lecturers in public universities have launched a strike to protest against what they call the government’s continued failure to implement a March deal to boost salaries and housing allowances.

Wednesday’s strike piles pressure on the government after a strike by nurses in public hospitals over the past few months has paralyzed health care services countrywide.

It also worsens the plight of more than half a million students in 31 public universities, since the lecturers ended a 54-day strike over pay in February and signed a pact with the government in March.
