It is good news to teachers who have suffered for long time earning little salaries.
The Members of Parliament have passed a bill that will see 11 billion shillings set aside for teachers’ salary increment. Teachers Service Commission boss Dr. Nancy Macharia confirmed this adding that this will be a big relief to teachers as they have suffered for so long.
With this, Macharia is hopeful that teachers will see a big change in their earning very soon. The law makers came to an agreement to give teachers a pay rise after it was discovered that there has been cries from teachers over the same for many years. They therefore had to appease these teachers as they prepare for the coming general election.
KNUT Secretary General Wilson Oyuu and KUPPET SG Akello Misori have confirmed this and urged teachers to be patient as TSC works on it.
This will be a big relief to teachers who have suffered as most of them are unable to invest because of the poor pay.
