Kenyans have been left reacting after a popular politician gave out his opinion concerning retirement age of teachers.
Politician Steve Simba shared that teachers should retire at the age of fifty five years. He based his argument on opinion that modern kids are highly exposed to a point some are clever than teachers. He added that a 4-year old kid cannot cope being taught by a 60-year old teacher.

Kenyans have reacted to this opinion speculating that some teachers are employed at an older age and making them resign at 55 us unreasonable.
Others added that if teachers are to resign at 55, then other civil servants need also to be considered.
