Vocal Senator Exposes The Reason Why Many Teachers are not Vaccinated as He Slams TSC Directive

Over the last one week, all health centers across the country have been filled with teachers and other civil servants who were looking for a vaccine in order avoid government's disciplinary action when the deadline was over. Teachers Service Commission sent messages to individual teachers ordering them to make sure that they receive the vaccine by 23rd August.

Speaking on Citizen TV, Nandi Senator Samson Cherangai has issued a rallying cry to government to stop forcing people to get vaccines yet there is deficit across the country. He claims that the country have been depending on donations and therefore, denying teachers their salaries because they have not been vaccinated is equivalent to colonial mentality.

He said "I was disappointed when there was a directive by Joseph Kinyua and even the TSC that was saying they want to refuse teachers their salaries because they have not been vaccinated. The question is, is these vaccines available? All of us know Moderna and other donations for the Last days. There is no vaccine that the government have bought and therefore, I think it is an orthodox - a colonial mentality."

He continued "Where am told teachers don't access their salaries or any senior civil servant because they have no gotten a vaccine. The question is, is the vaccine available? Number two, the issue is you should not force people."

He went further to advise TSC to avoid compulsory vaccination process as it can be challenged in a court of law if we are in a democratic country.

He warned "I want to advise the TSC that the route they are pursuing is very unfortunate and we should not end in that route because when you move to the court of law, then such issues should not be allowed in a democratic country."

However, he concludes by reminding Kenyans that the vaccination is good and should be taken as a personal initiative in order to control the rampaging pandemic. He reiterates that the 24-hour economy will resume if everyone is vaccinated.

He said "I agree and I want to appeal to every Kenyan, that not withstanding, it is good get vaccinated. Let us vaccinate. We need to reopen this country."
