Teachers reject Duale proposal to devolve education sector

14 January 2015, 15:27 Arap Yego

Bungoma - Teachers in Bungoma County have asked Parliament's Majority Leader Aden Duale to stop meddling in education affairs and forget about his proposal to devolve the education sector.

The teachers led by Bungoma County Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) Executive Secretary Ken Nganga said Duale should stop politicising education matters.

Nganga who was flanked by  Bungoma North sub county Knut executive secretary  Seme Sunguti at a press conference in Bungoma said counties don't have the capacity to fully manage the sector and that would lower the quality of education in the country.

“The health docket was devolved and is already facing so many challenges. Teachers in this country are over 400,000, will the county governments, which have proved inefficient in the health sector be able to manage us?" Nganga posed.

“Duale should go slow on this issue. We want to warn him that he risks facing the wrath of teachers if he does not relent on the matter,” cautioned Seme.

Last weekend, Duale suggested the devolution of the education sector as a way of avoiding recurrent strikes and also as a way of effectively addressing teachers’ grievances.

"Each county  in Kenya has its own unique  problems. For instance, in Garissa Township in my county, there is shortage of teachers and many other problems which are not the same in other counties such as Nairobi or Mombasa. It is now time for every county to deal with its education crisis," he said.
