KUPPET: Teachers used as scapegoats in raging school fires

29 July 2016, 13:54 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) Chairman, Omboko Milemba has said teachers should not be harassed in the pretext that they are causing fires in schools.

Milemba said teachers being held over school fires are being victimized for no reason.

“We know that our teachers are not a part of these fires; they are being used as scapegoats. These teachers have been teaching in these schools for many years and there were no arson cases,” Milemba said in Nairobi on Thursday.

He rejected Teachers Service Commission’s directive requiring all boarding school principals and deputies to live in school compounds saying teachers are not security experts.

“Making teachers stay in school, watch over students is much. Teachers did not train as watchmen. Let us separate security and teaching. We need to sober up. We do not need attacks against teachers or unions,” Milemba said.

He said Education Cabinet Secretary should have headed to their call to have schools closed to stop this menace.

“Our opinion was to close schools for a while to cool down the pressure. And that is still our position,” Milemba said.
