MP vows to move impeachment motion against Kaimenyi

09 March 2015, 08:25 Jayne Zack

Busia - Matayos MP Geoffrey Odanga has revealed that he will move an impeachment motion against Education Cabinet Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi.

Speaking during the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Busia Branch Annual General Meeting at their newly built offices in Busia town, Odanga said Kaimenyi has done more harm than good in Kenya's education sector.

Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba said he would second the motion.

Pressure on Odanga, who is also the Parliamentary Education Committee member to have President Uhuru Kenyatta fire Kaimenyi, was fuelled by KNUT officials led by the Executive Secretary General Wilson Sossion.

Sossion said the move by Kaimenyi to do away with school rankings in national exams without consultations and lowering fees at the beginning of the term had made Kaimenyi an enemy of teachers.

"Kaimenyi is busy fighting workers, which is not the work of a Cabinet Secretary. He will not do it in Kenya, we as workers, we will speak in one voice. I am now appealing to MPs to unite and pass a vote of no confidence on Kaimenyi who has become a liability to the teaching fraternity," said Sossion.

"Kaimenyi is having a field day ruining education, and it is worrying that the Parliamentary Committee on Education is becoming powerless, we do not hear them. Right now angels are weeping because education in Kenya is collapsing, as a fact for sure by one individual," he added.

He urged all governors to do their local ranking of schools and introduce awards to the best performers to shame Kaimenyi.

Sossion further said Labour Cabinet Secretary Kazungu Kambi should also be impeached for trying to remove check off system for workers.

"The scenario currently in the labour movement in Kenya is not anything to admire, the Salaries and Remuneration Commission has been used as an institution to mistreat workers and denying them their constitutional rights," Sossion stated.

He reiterated that Kaimenyi has no business in TSC adding that infrastructure and the acute shortage of teachers is the cause of the high fees.
