Politicians have been challenged to quit politicizing the re-deployment of non local teachers in Northern Kenyan and instead seek for a last solution to the regions insecurity.
The Governors from Wajir, Garissa and Mandera counties have been asked to set aside a budget aimed at training local teachers as a long term solution to the teacher shortage in the region.
This comes as Wajir residents took to the streets protesting the transfer of teachers threatening to sue TSC for denying their children a right to education.
As the locals demand quality education, a different school of thought says it is unfair to blame non-local teachers for demanding personal security.
Dubat Amey from the Kenya livestock marketing council says it is hypocritical of leaders to attack the teachers, TSC and the government, without doing much to assist in ensuring the security of non local teachers.
Government officers posted to the region have on several occasions bore the brunt of terror suspect’s profiling and the subsequent elimination whenever they staged an attack.
Garissa, Wajir and Mandera governors have been challenged to set aside some funds towards enrolling locals into teacher training institutions to build their capacity.
