Education Cabinet Secretary prof. Magoha said the payment of BOM teachers salaries was to be completely the obligation of individual schools having received the Free Primary Education (FPE) and Ree Secondary Education (FSE).

Reversal of this money is heartbreaking to these teaching and non-teaching staff, as they might be omitted out of the latest government disbursement in case Boards of Management, decline to remunerate them now that the Ministry of Education has reversed the operational money (3,750 per student and 2,725 per pupil) it had earlier disbursed, jeopardizing the hopes of these teachers oh school heads and Board of Management.
What’s surprising here is how the fund’s details briefly appeared on Nemis before being deleted. Ksh100 million shillings is awaiting to be paid to retired members of Parliament. Are we in a banana Republic? Why are the weak being underrated and looked down upon?
Where on earth does the government get the power and courage to pay retired Members of Parliament without even shame? It is very embarrassing that each month Kenyan taxpayers will be spending cash. 100 million paying retired MPs on the expense of poor suffering and jobless young Kenyans.
Young Board Of Management (BOM) And Private school teachers are hardly struggling with their families and have bills to pay. It’s time the government starts thinking of these teachers.
If possible the government should even offer loans to TSC registered teachers that should be recovered upon their employment just like the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB)
