The Executive Secretary of the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) Kitui branch Benjamin Kioko Mutia has asked the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to safeguard teachers comprehensively.
Speaking at the Annual General Assembly (AGA) of KUPPET members in Makueni branch at Tawa Social Hall, Mutia emphasized the imperative for a clear delineation between the roles of TSC and the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC).
“TSC should draw a line so that we know where KNEC stands and where TSC stands. Teachers have had it all and we need a permanent solution to our problems,” Mutia stated.
He expressed concerns about the perceived risks associated with KNEC’s oversight of exam administration, questioning whether teachers were now under the employ of KNEC rather than TSC.
Mutia called for a definitive resolution to alleviate the challenges faced by teachers, emphasizing the need for TSC to establish a clear boundary in their collaboration with KNEC.
“Why would teachers be subjected to risky jobs that would lead them to interdictions or end up in police cells,” he wondered.
