Over the past few days, there has been threats from teachers that there could be a strike of teachers because of things that the government has not implemented despite them agreeing to them.

The Kenya Certificate of Primary Education, KCPE, and the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education, KCSE, exams are scheduled to begin any moment as from next week and many parents as well as learners are worried that the looming teacher's strike could incapacitate the exams.
However, this afternoon, the Cabinet Secretary for Education, Professor George Magoha, has insisted that the two exams will still go on as planned despite the looming teacher's strike.
The Cabinet Secretary has urged the Teachers Service Commision to engage the unions so that any standoff can be averted since the exams are just right around the corner.
It's unclear if teachers and their employer body will reach an agreement before the strike and how the exams are to proceed should the teachers strike.
