KUPPET co- founders in court over unpaid benefits

13 February 2014, 15:51 Millicent Kawii

Nairobi - Four retired teachers have threatened to sue the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) over more than KES 5.8M unpaid retirement benefits.

In a notice given to KUPPET, Mr John Walter Otieno, Mr Joseph Lwannia, Mr Christopher Mandu, and Mr Joseph Wabushi claim the amount remains unpaid due to impunity of the Union’s administration.

The four who claim to be key core founders of KUPPET allege that the current crop of leaders at the union have been adamant to hear or settle the retirement debt.

“We have made up our mind to take up legal action for the recovery of Sh 211,680,000 , it is for public benefit to speak on the role we played in establishing KUPPET and now we have been sidelined and completely forgotten,” said the four in a statement.

Mr Otieno, Mr Lwannia, Mr Mandu, and Mr Wabushi claim they served as KUPPET officials form 1998 -1999.

Upon the end of their term in office, they were to be paid at a later date when the collection of union dues from members through a check off system by the Teachers’ Service Commission TSC would begin going to KUPPET.

According to the plaintiffs, in a resolution supported by the governing council, it was agreed that the renumenarations and allowances for the interim officials be put on hold and be paid when finances are available in the course of their retirement.

They allege that their monthly salary was KES 30,000 which adds up to KES 2,880,000 for the two years plus a refundable civil debt of KES 3,000,000 totaling to KES 5,880,000.

They are demanding for compensation for the last 15 years of being in retirement.

They further allege that KUPPET administration has failed, refused and neglected to give attention to settle their demands contrary to the Employment Act.
