KUPPET Withdraws Teachers From Isongo Secondary School After Principal Ejection

The Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) has taken a stand to ensure the safety of its members at a school in Kakamega, where the principal was forcefully ousted by parents.

Johnston Wabuti, the Union’s branch chairperson, emphasized that teachers won’t resume their duties until the Ministry of Education and Interior addresses their security concerns.

Wabuti, during a peaceful protest to the Mumias East subcounty commissioner’s office, urged authorities to explain the lack of arrests in the case.

During the protest, Union’s national secretary general Akelo Misori echoed the need to withdraw members from places where security is uncertain.

The video circulating on the internet captured the unusual situation where St Gabriel Isongo Secondary School’s principal, David Wafula, was escorted out by parents wielding leaves and banners.

Parents, joined by bodaboda operators, accused Wafula of contributing to poor academic results, with only two university entry grades out of 179 candidates.

The disgruntled parents argued that the mean score had steadily declined, reaching 2.89 last year. Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu issued a stern warning against such actions, deeming them as criminal.

He emphasized that any invasion of schools to remove teachers over academic performance would face firm and decisive action from law enforcement. Machogu urged aggrieved stakeholders to use legal channels to report concerns about school performance.

This incident mirrors a similar one in Moiben, Uasin Gishu, highlighting a growing concern that education-related issues are being taken to extreme measures.

The call for a safer and more constructive approach to addressing these concerns remains at the forefront of the Union’s agenda.
