Kuppet asks teachers to leave volatile regions

07 April 2015, 21:38 Dareel Eric

Nairobi - The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) has asked its members to withdraw their services in the North Eastern Parts of the country.

Union national chairperson Omboko Milemba said that teachers' welfare was more important that they cannot risk their lives teaching in the volatile parts.

" Teachers should not be used as a litmus test on the strengths of the Al Shabaab. If the government is not going to make security their main agenda, then our teachers have no option but to back off from the volatile parts of the country," Milemba said.

He said that teachers sacrificed and went back to the troubled regions even after their fellows were shot at close range last December at the Mandera Bus Attack while they were heading for Christmas holidays, but the government has done little to improve their security.

" Most teachers decided to go back to the North Eastern parts after having been threatened with sack, but we are now asking them to come back from those regions," Milemba said.

He said the recent attack on the students at the Garissa University College that left close to 150 people dead is a pointer that the area is not safe at all and that should sound as a warning to teachers who are still teaching there.
