Teachers Angered By Delayed KNEC Payment

Last week , teachers who marked the 2020 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination expressed their anger on KNEC social platforms for delayed payment of their dues after conducting the national examination.

During the month of March and April , the Kenya National Examination Council contracted teachers to supervise, invigilate and mark the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examination. The teachers did their duties diligently and ensured the exercise was successful. The timely release of the class eight and form examination was enough prove of how teachers dedicated themselves to ensure the candidates progress to the next stage of their education.

After engaging in this rigorous exercise, the Kenya National Examination Council is yet to pay the contracted professionals. The examination has become notorious and reckless in the manner they have been handling teachers. Despite the teachers union calling upon them to improve the rates of payment for each paper , even the little they offered has not been paid. When inquiry was made about the payment through their social platform , they casually responded by saying the payments will be done as soon as the processing is over.

It's high time the government relooks the operations of KNEC which was also accused in 2019 by Members of Parliament for fuelling ethnic imbalance in their recruitment of staff. Being a very important institution in the education sector every effort should be directed to clear the inefficiencies in the examination body.
