KUPPET: Teachers have no other option but change profession

09 November 2015, 10:20 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Kenyan teachers have no option but to change profession, according to the Kenya union of post primary education teachers (KUPPET).

According to KUPPET Nakuru branch Chairman Simon Kambo, after the court of appeal thrashed the 50-60% pay rise granted to teachers by the labour relations court, most teachers were left demoralized with no hope of ever getting a better pay.

Speaking Sunday in Nakuru town, Kambo said that both KNUT and KUPPET have started advising their members especially younger ones to think of changing profession.

“Kenyan teachers have only one option left with them and that is changing their profession if they want a better future. As unions, we don’t see any hope of getting better pay for our members and our advice to them especially those new in the teaching profession is to change it from teaching to something else,” said Kambo.

He added: “The court of appeal dealt a final blow to teachers and we don’t see any justice coming from the supreme court and teachers will have to either be satisfied with their current pay or think of doing other things.”

Kambo said that the unions cannot take any future industrial action because they have been paralyzed financially after TSC denied members their monthly contributions.
