TSC asked to remunerate teachers better in order to lead decent lives

The late teacher Gabriel Mokono

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has been asked to provide teachers with good salaries to enable them and their families to enjoy life as they discharge duties.

Retired teacher John Ogeto said teachers deserve better earnings like their peers in the civil service decrying the low salaries given to them by the employer.

“Some of them do honest work but earn peanuts not enough even to buy one dairy cow for their families and have enough to use for family needs such as payment of school fees for their children and other bill,” he said.

He was speaking at Kiogo Primary and Junior Secondary School when he joined teachers and their learners to mourn one of their teachers.

The deceased Gabriel Mokono, who hailed from Kitutu Central Sub-county, rested yesterday morning after a long illness bravely borne.
