How Long Shall Teachers Suffer? Teachers Left On Their Own As The Following Announcement Is Made

Teachers who are teaching in public primary and secondary schools in Kenya are employed, paid and fired by the government through Teacher Service Commission (TSC). These teachers enjoy many benefits that are accrued to them. They are given House allowances, medical insurance among others.

TSC contracted AON Minet to cover teachers' medical insurance. The insurance company has been questioned on many occasions about the quality of services they are offering teachers. Some teachers complained that they not getting better services from the said insurance company. According to some of them, they are not able but even a common medicine using the insurance company.

Some hospitals are also complaining that the Money company is not paying them on time after offering services to teachers. The latest hospital to complain is Tenwek Hospital. Tenwek has suspended medical services to teachers covered by AON Minet insurance company. The reason for suspending the services is because of bending bill amounting to over Sh45 million.

Today, teachers who went to seek services from the said hospital were turned away. They were referred to other hospitals like St Clare’s Kaplong Hospital in Bomet County and Litein AIC Hospital.

 “Since I was not prepared for a trip to another place for treatment, I have decided to return home, I will travel to Litein tomorrow,” said Ms Tonui who is a teacher that was turned away.

Mr Malel Langat who is the Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) Bomet branch executive secretary agreed that teachers have reported that they have been turned away by the said hospital

 “Unfortunately, several teachers have come to us seeking intervention after being turned away from the hospital,” said Mr Malel Langat.
