The paralysis in the public education sector in Kenya entered day two as teachers remained adamant that they would not return to class unless the government fully pays them their dues as contained in the 1997 agreement. KNUT officials and protesting teachers stripped and roughed up headteachers who did not join in the strike in at least one county as other incidents of violence and intimidation against teachers not on strike were also reported. This, as many of the public schools remained closed while students in private schools continued with normal classes as their institutions reopened for third term.
