KNUT faults rival KUPPET for inciting JSS teachers into strike

KUPPET Tana River Executive Secretary Omondi Oluoch (carrying water) leads JSS intern teachers in protests. KNUT has accused KUPPET of inciting these teachers into demonstrations.

Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has faulted its rival union KUPPET for what they term as misleading Junior Secondary School (JSS) teachers.

Speking in Webuye, officials led by Bungoma East Branch Executive Secretary Robert Mandila accused KUPPET of inciting JSS teachers to boycott duties.

“The move is unpopular, with the ill motive of plunging CBC into a crisis,” warned Mandila, reiterating that KNUT does not support the strike.

The vocal official took the opportunity to ask the Education Cabinet Secretary (CS) Ezekiel Mochogu to resign over the recent confusion that he threw the country into as he postponed reopening at midnight.

“It is very shameful for a whole CS to issue a circular at midnight postponing the reopening of schools,” he stated.

In a related development, Bungoma East KNUT chairperson Jacob Temba has chided Teachers Service Commission (TSC) for failing to promote teachers who have been in industry for decades.

He castigated the teacher employer for taking the teachers in circles without issuing proper directives.
