The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Secretary General Wilson Sossion, has reiterated that the September 1st nationwide teachers’ strike will go on as planned should the Teachers’ Service Commission (TSC) carry on with ongoing performance appraisals and delocalization of teachers.
Sossion accused the Ministry of Education of ignoring the plight of teachers.
Speaking in Burumba secondary school during a fundraising for construction of laboratory, Sossion faulted the ongoing exercise of performance appraisals and delocalization of teachers, which he said is aimed at bullying and humiliating teachers.
Sossion claimed the Ministry of Education had ingnored the plight of teachers who go through financial challenges hence forcing them to go on strike.
Sentiments echoed by Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula who condemned the proposal to abolish boarding schools.
Wetangula said the move will encourage tribalism.
Should the teachers’ strike materialize, learners preparing for both KCSE and KCPE examinations will be inconvenienced with operations expected to grind to a halt.
