The Kisii County Education Board Chairman Prof. Henry Onderi has asked the government to place Early Childhood Development and Education (ECDE) teachers under the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) for effective management.

Onderi said that the work done by ECDE teachers is vital to the country’s education system and should be remunerated handsomely.

He also decried the disparities observed across various counties and called on the Council of Governors (CoG) to hasten the harmonization of their Schemes of Service to ensure the teachers experience a conducive working environment.

His concern comes days after more than 950 ECDE teachers from the county vowed to down their tools on September 14 due to delayed salaries and appointment letters.

Elsewhere, Bogeka Ward Member of County Assembly (MCA) Vincent Abuga asked Governor Simba Arati to address the teachers’ grievances to avert the strike which he said would disrupt learning.

He regretted that some of the teachers had not earned any salary for the last one year.

Arati, who had earlier threatened to sack the teachers who would go on strike, asked the teachers to continue working and be patient as the county reconstitutes the Public Board Committee which will attend to their grievances.

“I know and understand the need for money but there is a procedure that is supposed to guide us on this,” he said.
