Following a long wait, teachers who staffed last year’s KCSE exams are expected to receive their dues.
When it was question time in Parliament, Bomet Central MP Ronald Tonui enquired as to why there are recurring delays in teacher payment.
” cabinet secretary should come out and explain why the national exams council fails to issue the payment of these instructors on time every year while prioritizing other workers,” Tonui added.
Professor Magoha was also asked by the legislator to provide a timeline for when the funds would be released.
Follow the fact that officials have yet to identify the teachers’ pay day, insiders indicate Knec will begin paying early next week, when Magoha appears in Parliament for questions on the matter.
One legislator who is also the Kuppet assistant national treasurer, demanded that the accusations be reviewed.
All teachers who invigilated and supervised the KCPE tests have been cleared by Knec thus far.
Despite participating in the activity, several elementary school teachers have complained about not being paid.
The Knec has hired a total of 242,406 teachers to assist with the supervision and marking of the national exams in 2021.
These teachers have taken to social media to protest Knec’s failure to pay teachers who invigilated and oversaw the exams.
Follow the payment delay, several teachers have vowed not to participate in the exercise again.
The Contractual professionals, such as Centre Managers (Principals and Head Teachers), Supervisors, and Invigilators, are among those listed for payment.
