Teachers in Kenya play important role in the life of our children. Sometimes teachers got injured while in the line of duties and nothing is done to protect them against such injuries.
Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) Busia Branch now want teachers service commission to activate Workers Injuries Benefit Act (WIBA) to cater for teachers who get injured on the line of duty. Speaking to Standard Digital Kuppet executive secretary Busia Branch Moffat Okissai want the act to be active to help teachers.
"Worker Injury Benefit Act (WIBA) has now to be activated. A number of teachers in the past have gotten injuries while on duty, they have not been paid to date. Seven examiners left Nairobi for their respective homes upon reaching webuye they had an accident in public vehicle. So in past we were having teachers also getting injured while on duty and WIBA has not been active," Okissai told standard digital.
This is good news as teachers especially those who got injured while on line of duty. Incase teachers service commission effects the request by Kuppet the teachers will work without fear of getting hurt or injuries while undertaking official duties.
