KNUT Protests sacking of four KCPE invigilators in Kisii


By Allan Otieno

The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has condemned the manner in which four invigilators who came late at examination centres in Kisii were suspended saying the act was inhumane, and uncalled for.

Speaking to Ghetto Radio News Kenya National Union of Teachers Deputy Secretary General Hezborn Otieno has described the incident as ruthless and disrespectful and that procedure was not followed to fire the four invigilators.

‘‘The act was disrespectful and education officials must stop. Do not chase a teacher like a dog. Give them time to explain themselves if not satisfied then fire them procedurally,’’ he said.

Early Learning and Basic Education Principal Secretary Dr. Julius Jwan, who had earlier on supervised the distribution of exam papers at Kisii Central Sub County examination depot, turned to the invigilators at Kisii Primary and called on the County Teachers Service Commission Director to take disciplinary action against the four  teachers.

Meanwhile the union is urging teachers to go for the Covid-19 vaccine jab and protect themselves and children.

‘‘We have lost 41 teachers according to teachers service commission and we don’t want to lose more so please teachers shun the rumours you hear around you and get vaccinated,’’ he added.
