Gov’t Reverses Funds Meant For BoM Teachers Salaries

Government has reversed funds that were recently sent to schools to cater for salaries of personnel employed by board of management(BoM).

Kahi Indimuli, who is the chairman of Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association(KEPSHA), confirmed the reversal citing that government was mulling on how the funds should be spent.

The move has undoubtedly poured cold water on BoM teachers’ hopes, bearing in mind that most of them have gone for more than five months without pay.

Statistics from the Kenya Union of Post Primary Teachers (Kuppet) indicate that close to 120,000 teachers employed by BOMs have not received their salaries since the government ordered closure of schools in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

On Thursday, August 6, Education CS Prof. Magoha assured principals and BOM teachers that the funds would be released, with school heads confirming that Ksh 3,725 per student for operations and Ksh 1 per student for tuition, was released.

The fate of teachers in private schools remains so bleak, as most of them contemplate shutting down owing to the fact that Covid-19 takes a heavy toll on them.

Private schools have requested the government to offer them a Ksh 7 billion relief to aid, to keep them afloat in the wake of the covid-19 pandemic.
