We signed a Memorandum of Understanding- KUPPET wants gov’t to fulfill the deal they agreed upon.
Speaking on sunday, The Kenya union of post primary education teachers, revealed that they agreed on a number of things with Kenya kwanza before elections.
The teachers aired that, they were promised a pay rise among other goodies, if they supported President William Ruto led coalition.
In his speech, KUPPET Deputy Secretary General Moses Nthurima stated that, now is the time for the government to act as they promised.
Moses stated,”We signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the incoming Government before they were elected and a number of things were agreed upon.”
“Our expectations as a union is that TSC will roll out sessions for negotiations because the economy has improved and teachers cannot wait anymore,” he added.
The union further, stated that, the government should support the competence based learning, to help learners fit in the picture of this country.
KUPPET’s assistant treasurer said,”The current system is knowledge-based. We want to expand and an education system which will ensure that our children will fit into society and the economy. That can only happen if the Government supports CBC.”
The grievances comes a day, after Misori, the KUPPET secretary general, stated that legislators should pass the teachers 8.9B NHIF cover.
Misori stated,”KUPPET calls upon parliament and National Treasury to urgently provide funds for teachers medical insurance under review.”
“We have in our knowledge that Teachers Service Commission (TSC) and NHIF already had an arrangement for a comprehensive medical cover but the bottleneck is NHIF cover demands an additional Ksh8.9 billion to be effected… In the absence of the provision of this amount, then teachers will be out of cover,” Misori added.
