Teachers reject vetting, vow to go on strike

Nairobi - Teachers have rejected plans to vet them starting January and said that they will go on strike if forced to.
The Teachers Service Commision TSC had stated Tuesday that teachers would have to undergo vetting from January to ascertain their level of suitability in their respective roles.
TSC CEO Nancy Macharia had stated that it was a must for teachers to go through the vetting.
However, teachers unions say that they were not consulted over the matter and will not accept vetting.
Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers KUPPET Secretary Akelo Misori says that they have not been consulted over the vetting and will thus not undergo it.
" The vetting is of their own regard. They did not invite us for talks over them so have no right to ask for it and claim that they find it necessary," he told News24.
Kenya National Union of Teachers KNUT was yet to respond to the queries over the vetting.
