BOM Teachers To Demonstrate On Thursday. Babu Owino Declares

Last Updated at: 2020-09-16 05:03:29


BOM Teachers are now planning to hold devolved demonstrations across the country to demand their payments. Board of Management teachers has gone for over five months now without payments even after President Kenyatta's directive that they are cushioned. 

For over two weeks now these teachers have been expecting to be paid only to be thrown right, left and centre by the Ministry of Education. A few weeks ago Professor George Magoha said that all BOM teachers had been paid only for teachers to protest later on social media that their accounts were empty. 

Chief Administrative Secretary Zack Kinuthia, later promised that money would have been paid by last week on Friday but all was not right as the week ended with empty accounts. These teachers have been complaining of life difficulties as they have bills to pay and families to take care of. 

Embakasi East Member of Parliament Hon Babu Owino together with the Samburu East MP and others on Friday warned that should BOM teachers not receive their money then Teachers will have to go to the street to demand what's duly theirs. 

Today Education CS Magoha has revealed that all bonafide BOM teachers should have been paid by now. He said that all was done six weeks ago but according to BOM teachers who spoke to Teachers Updates confirmed that no money has been channelled to their accounts by today evening. 

Babu Owino who promised to lead teachers to demonstrate has now announced that the demonstrations will take place on Thursday from 6.00 am to 11.00 pm. Through his Facebook wall, Babu has called all BOM teachers to attend to the Demos according to the directive that he will announce on Wednesday this week. 

"Further direction on how to conduct the demos will be given on Wednesday during my press release at 10 am. We are begging the police to have enough Teargas and Rungus. Teargas pills 💊 will be provided. #NoTurningBack."

That number nine i think is fake, and why do they want all these documents and yet we scanned and send to them, it is just a formality which disadvantages other, most of the doctors are on strike, who will fill that form, why not private hospitals? Even the public hospital doctors do not examin, they just fill the form, what they yearn for is just money.

They should open schools.. Enough looting has been done in the two ministries to benefit a few individuals... They should not kill the education of the common child when their kids are learning online
