KNUT Releases Statement Regarding TSC Teachers Interdicted.
The alarming problem of sexual assault in schools has been strongly opposed by the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT).
Collins Oyuu, the KNUT Secretary General, made a strong statement during the AGM of the Kirinyaga KNUT branch.
He highlighted that the union will not defend or assist teachers who were found guilty of sexually assaulting pupils and vehemently argued that they should not be permitted to continue their professions as teachers and should face legal repercussions.
Oyuu stressed the significance of protecting pupils by urging KNUT branch officials and executive members to keep watchful in seeing and responding to any incidents of teachers breaching the rights of the kids in their care.
Oyuu focused on the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) in addition to the topic of sexual abuse. He issued a warning against any payment delays for the supervisors and invigilators working the next national exams.
Oyuu made it plain that if the council failed to pay these examiners’ allowances on time, the union would seriously consider conducting industrial action.
He cited cases in which the council had broken agreements in the past, leading to severe delays in teacher payments lasting several months.
Oyuu emphasized the significance of fair and swift compensation for educators involved in the test process and encouraged KNEC to take aggressive measures to guarantee that examiners receive their compensation immediately and without any unnecessary delays after the conclusion of the examinations.
