Musalia Mudavadi Criticises Uhuru's Government Over Defiance of Court Orders

Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi on Wednesday warned President Uhuru Kenyatta of the consequences that will befall the country with the constant defiance of court orders by his government. 

According to the National Super Alliance (NASA) principal, the defiance of court orders mirrors a tradition established by the Jubilee government. 

He warned: "The government is inviting the law of the jungle by constantly ignoring court orders."

The former Cabinet minister further stated that if Kenyans took matters into their own hands, following the disregarding of court orders, the country will be destabilised. 

Addressing the continued lecturer's strike, Mudavadi noted that the government ought to listen to their grievances and improve their terms of employment. 

"The government players in the university education saga are only borrowing a leaf from a system that is decidedly hellbent on ignoring court orders.

"A caring government would have closed all campuses until the industrial dispute with lecturers is resolved,” he asserted. 

The NASA principal also exclaimed that the government should save the students and parents the agony of unprofitable expenses. 

He expressed that the strike which commenced on March 1, has hurt students who will have to spend more time on campus. 

"The students are also paying for accommodation yet they are not learning. It is very bad since no one will compensate them for losses,” he mentioned.

University dons have since insisted that they will not go back to work until their issues are resolved.
