It is good this matter has been referred to the National Peace Council. What l want the peace council to consider is how can one group of citizens enjoy all the time at the expense of the other group. Look at how long they have enjoyed article 71 and the way the public sector workers have been marginalized over the years.
If the politicians will come to the level of a Single Spine, we would have no problem but for them to be article 71 and we on the single spine no!
We must fight for article 71 to be amended. No retreat, no surrender!

This is not national peace council matter. Where were they when public sector workers were given 4 and 7 percent last year. Ns3m hunu nkoaa na dabiara modi kyer3 y3n saa
If they know what’s good for them, then they should the needful. Salary negotiation isn’t about peace council. It’s about life and death. Nkwasea keka kwa
