Due to unmet demands by the Ministry of Education, a group of teachers involved in the marking of national examinations threatened to boycott the exercise.
According to recent reports from Kenyans.co.ke, Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET), led the charge against the Ministry for failing to implement some of their collective agreements.
Speaking in Njoro Sub-County during the annual meeting of teachers' representatives in Nakuru, KUPPET deputy secretary general, Moses Thuranira, emphasized the need for government to prioritize teachers' concerns in order to avoid disruption of national exams.
Thuranira bemoaned the fact that teachers' enumerations during the marking exercise were lower than those of other officers.
"Our teachers were asked not to report to the marking centres so that we will be able to negotiate for them better rates for the papers. We shall be able to negotiate for them because teachers are paid very poorly compared to others officers who are manning the examinations," Thuranira stated according to the source.
