Yet another teacher shot dead in Mandera

02 March 2015, 18:38 William Korir

Nairobi - There have been major protests after a teacher was shot dead by unknown persons in Mandera, causing further trouble with teachers who have refused to report back to the area.

The teacher was allegedly shot dead Sunday evening in an attack that has yet to be claimed as tension amongst teachers in the area and north Eastern region as a whole increased.

KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion confirmed the incident and insisted that there would be countrywide protests if the perpetrators are not brought to book soon.

" We are shocked and surprised that such an incident can take place even as protests over the state of security in the region is spoken of loudly," he said.

" We condemn the killing in the strongest terms possible and we demand that the killers of our brother and member must be brought to justice by the government security agencies," he added.

He asked that teachers in Mandera remain united and assume togetherness.

" It is regrettable and we are saddened as a union. We share the grief with the branch, the teachers of Mandera and indeed the family.

Teachers posted to the region have refused to go back to school, stating that they are not safe there and will not unless they are granted certain perks and their security is assured.

About 800 teachers have refused to go back to the region.

The Teachers Service Commision TSC has in the meantime advertised the positions and says that it is moving forward with plans to send new teachers to the region regardless of the plight of the current ones.

24 teachers were killed by suspected Al Shabaab militia late last year while on a bus to Nairobi for the end of holidays, drawing protests from teachers and especially those that work in the northern Kenya region.
