2018 KCSE hangs in the balance after new demands by teachers

Teachers give Exam Council tough ultimatum

The teachers claim that they have not been paid for marking the 2017 KCSE exams and vowed not to participate in this year's exams.

The 14,000 tutors hired by the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) divulge that they are owed at least Sh1 billion.

Legal action

Through Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet), the teachers gave KNEC chairman George Magoha seven days to disburse the money failure to which they will be taking legal action against the Council.

"The examiners should not be demanding payments for work done. We are giving Magoha and the examination council one week, failing which we shall move to court to make them pay,” Kuppet Secretary General Akello Misori was quoted by a local daily.

At the same time, Kisumu Kuppet Executive Secretary Zablon Awange stated that the delay in payment had taken four months despite a promise by former Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i that the teachers would be paid promptly.

Mr. Awange added that if KNEC was unable to pay teacher then it ought to stop hiring.
