Politicians warned against meddling in transfer of teachers


Nakuru – Politicians in Nakuru County have been warned against interfering with the education sector especially at this time when the country is gearing up towards the general elections.
Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Nakuru branch secretary general, Maina Muhia warned that the union will not allow any politicians to disrupt learning activities at the expense of students.
Speaking Friday in Nakuru town, Muhia accused unnamed politicians of influencing the transfer of teachers from certain schools without valid reasons.
He said that politicians were using goons who storm schools and demand the transfer of teachers, and sometimes evicting them from schools.
“As a union, we will not allow politicians to interfere with activities in our schools. We cannot allow you to use goons to push for and force the transfer of some teachers from certain schools,” he said.
Muhia called on politicians to carry out campaigns in a peaceful manner to avoid causing what he called ‘educational clashes’.
At the same time, he lauded education CS Fred Matiang’i for taking stringent measures that have brought to an end exam leaking.
“A Kenyan degree had lost its credibility but with what Matiang’i is doing, the degree will regain its credibility and as a union, we will support him in his efforts,” he said.
