KNEC delays payments for exam supervisors
10 April 2013, 11:07
Secondary and primary school teachers who supervised and invigilated KSCE and KCPE exams in Magarini and Malindi district want the examination body to pay them.
The teacher have accused the examination body for failing to meet their promise of paying them immediately after the exams last year.
They want Kenya National examination Council (KNEC) to stop delaying their pay.
Malindi and Magarini district Kenya National Union of Teachers Secretary General Fredrick Nguma said the examination body was misusing their teachers.
"Students and pupils who sat for the exams already have their results but those involved in the whole process of supervising the exercise are still stranded without being paid,' claimed Nguma.
Nguma took issues with the internet verification process recommended for teachers by KNEC saying most of them live in rural areas where there are no cyber cafes making it difficult.
The KNUT official said that many teachers are forced to travel to towns to get such services which also affects school learning programs because it forces teachers to skip lessons.
He said that teachers who participated in supervising the final exams should have been paid immediately after the exercise because all details had been provided to KNEC to facilitate payments.
Nguma urged the exam body to make sure their clients are paid as quickly as possible.
