KNEC Given Deadline by KUPPET for Delayed Payments
KNEC Given Deadline by KUPPET for Delayed Payments. The Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) has issued a one-week deadline for the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) to pay the honorarium for marking national exams. The Kenya official Examination Council (KNEC) is in charge of holding the country’s official exams.
The KNEC has employed them in the past, and they won’t permit this practice to continue, according to Julius Korir, who serves as the Deputy Chairperson.
We want the Kenya National Examination Council to start paying our instructors as soon as possible because they have exploited them, something we won’t tolerate. Korir said, “We want the council to call us within the next week so that we can resolve the issue, otherwise they will see something that they have never seen before.”
Moses Nthurima, the Deputy Secretary General for KUPPET, put his feelings into words when he asked the teachers to skip the next National Exams due to the delayed payments. The professors concurred with his comments.
“We want to warn our instructors to stay away from marking this year’s exams since the council has not yet accepted responsibility,” he continued. “We are urging the council not to exploit our teachers because they have not gotten their compensation from the previous year. “Our teachers haven’t received their payments from the previous year, so we’re asking the council not to take advantage of them,”

They also want the KNEC to talk with them about the payment rates and procedures that are ideal for teachers.
The Teachers Service Commission’s secretariat was paid differently than they were, so they asked that their compensation be adjusted accordingly.
The TSC secretariat has made between 50 and 60 percent more money than instructors in the same job category since the start of this decade. These people anticipate an increase in their pay.
We are also TSC members, and after examining the data, we discovered that discrimination against teachers has cost the educators 127 billion dollars that they should have gotten,” Nthurima said.
On the other hand, they asserted that the TSC’s method for promoting teachers is unsuccessful.
The career development system, also known as the promotions technique, does not help the instructors because it is presented in a way that they cannot understand.
They claim that neither the Teachers Service Commission’s adverts nor the job groups for senior teachers include any instructors. Furthermore, they assert that no teachers work in the job groups designated for primary school teachers.
“Today the commission has an advertisement that wants teachers to apply for positions and there is no promotion, yet they say that teachers are not taking the administration role,” Nthurima said in his conclusion. “How can they say that when they have a job advertisement asking for applications from teachers and there is no promotion?”
