Ngilu is facing Defence assistant minister David Musila who comes from Mwingi. The teachers, who were led by the Mwingi Knut branch vice chairman Morris Maluki said, they are grateful that it is through the Narc leadership that the stalemate over the teachers 50 per cent house allowance, 20 per cent medical allowance and 20 per cent commuter allowance was unblocked.
The teachers who applauded the outgoing Mutitu MP Kiema Kilonzo who belongs to the Narc party for pushing for the repealing of the contentious legal notice number 16 of 2003 that had blocked teachers from enjoying their allowances.
