In Summary

  • According to Mr. Sossion, who blames the commission for the endless stalemate between the government and teachers, an independent body should be created to help in the regulation of teachers’ welfare.

Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT)  Secretary General Wilson Sossion now wants the Teachers’ Service Commission (TSC) to be abolished.

According to Mr. Sossion, who blames the commission for the endless stalemate between the government and teachers, an independent body should be created to help in the regulation of teachers’ welfare.

Mr. Sossion also revealed that the union had already proposed amendments in the TSC Act that should only leave the commission with the responsibility of employing teachers.

“The mandate that we granted TSC is bad, we need to return it back into the Ministry of Education. We cannot have two government bodies manning the same thing; education. We need to have one office and the money they are using should be used to employ teachers,” said Sossion.

His sentiments were echoed by Funyula Member of Parliament Wilberforce Oundo who urged TSC to “respect teachers.”

The two spoke during a fundraiser at Ambrose Adeya Adongo Secondary School in Alego/Usonga on Saturday where other political leaders – including area MP Samuel Atandi – also told teachers to stand firm in the struggle for their rights.
