Beware of conmen, KUPPET warns school heads

15 August 2014, 14:40 Jane Zack

Busia - The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) Executive Secretary Busia Branch, Paul Wesonga Namukuru has sent a warning to Secondary School heads to beware of con men purporting to be officials from the Ministry of Education.

He said that the con men pretend to be vetting schools for them to benefit from infrastructure funding, and then asking the Principals to send money through phones.

"These 'officers' are calling Principals telling them that they are vetting identified schools for infrastructure funding and in the process demand that those Principals should cough a total of KES 10 000 for them to benefit," Namukuru cautioned.

He warned all Principals in Busia County to be alert so that they do not fall into the trap of the imposters.

"That process is very clear and nobody should cheat them and syphon money from the schools. We are therefore alerting our Principals in advance to be vigilant on such calls," the Executive Secretary said.

He clarified that such adverts are normally placed by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) and the schools to benefit named.

He however said that he had not heard of any particular case in Busia County.
