KUPPET asks govt to give capitation to schools in time

KUPPET Executive Secretary for Trans-Nzoia County Furaha-Lusweti. He has asked the government to release capitation funds to schools in time.

KUPPET Trans Nzoia chapter has urged the government to be giving capitation funds in time for school programmes to run smoothly.

The county’s Executive Secterary Lusweti Furaha said school heads are facing difficulties in running the institutions owing to financial constraints.

“The delays in the disbursement of capitation funds by the Ministry of Education (MoE) puts school heads in a precarious situation,” he said at Chebarus in Trans Nzoia East Sub-county.

He also defended school heads against accusations that they charged parents extra levies, saying what they pay is only to cater for their children’s meals.

Likuyani MP Innocent Mugabe challenged the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to upgrade the employment of Junior Secondary School (JSS) teachers to permanent terms.

“We call on the government to provide the necessary funds to hire the intern JSS teachers on permanent and pensionable terms,” he said.

Meanwhile, the 643 JSS teachers in the county have pledged to stay away from school until the TSC complies with the court order to turn them into permanent employees.
