The tutors under their local County umbrella body, Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet), said they are worried after some headteachers of primary and secondary schools were beaten up.

According to Luketelo, the headteacher of Sikalame Secondary School was recently attacked by a section of parents for sending their children home for fees. The head of Lutungu Secondary School in Kanduyi sub-County was also forcibly evicted by parents after being beaten up.

“We are worried that our members are being subjected to violence yet police are taking no action. We want the Bungoma County commissioner Maalim Mohamed to ensure that his officers bring the culprits to book,” ordered the unionist.

“We want teachers in this County to teach without fear and their security to be guaranteed. If this is not done, we shall go on strike in solidarity with our colleagues,” said Luketelo, who also asked that action be taken against politicians who are said to be inciting members of the public against school managements.
