Former Kenya national union of teachers secretary general Wilson Sossion has continued to stand up with teachers in a bid to stop teachers service commission from implementing new directives through the parliment to terminate the teachers professional development programme.
The nominated member of parliament on an orange democratic movement party ticket was speaking during the national assembly sitting and maintained that teachers service commission should respect the rule of law as well as teachers rights.
Teachers service commission had rolled out the teachers professional development programme which aimed at offering in-service training programs for all active teachers in the country.
Teachers service commission had identified the institutions that will be offering the refresher training program,as they meet the training costs for the modules at a cost of six thousand shillings per year,which will be mandatory for all active teachers.
Teachers service commission programme was however challenged in court citing lack of public participation.
Nominated member of parliament Wilson Sossion and other petitioners will continue to oppose the move stating that the directives will affect the financial situation of teachers.
He has urged teachers to stay calm and stop panicking as he believes that the members of Parliament will pass the motion to stop the tpd from being implemented. He termed it as unfair to teachers who are the critical netizens in building the national.
