Garissa teachers to be transferred, says KNUT

07 April 2015, 14:17 William Korir

Nairobi - Teachers based in Garissa and other areas of north Eastern wishing to leave will be helped to earn transfers, the Kenya National Union of Teachers KNUT has said.

Secretary General Wilson Sossion speaking to News24 Monday said that the union would allow teachers feeling unsafe in the region to move out.

He said that those not registered with the union should do so by the end of the week to enable the union actively seek transfers.

" Despite the government calling KNUT names, it is now very obvious that teachers are not safe in north Eastern," he said.

" Teachers have suffered before and it is now clear that most of them and their families do not feel safe and must be moved quickly".

" We will actively seek their removal and redeployment to other parts of the country," he added.

KNUT has previously argued that its members in the region are unsafe following attacks on teachers in December last year in which 24 of their colleagues died.

Teachers posted in Mandera have refused to return to the region following the attacks in Mandera.

No teachers have been reported to have died in the attacks in Garissa in which 148 people died.
