Nyeri Leaders Vow To End Disparities In Teachers' Hardship Allowance & Review Delocalisation Policy

Nyeri Leaders Vow To End Disparities In Teachers’ Hardship Allowance & Review Delocalisation Policy.
Two Nyeri leaders have promised to look into the disparities in teachers’ hardship allowances as well as the delocalisation policy.
Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu and Nyeri senatorial aspirant Priscilla Nyokabi said they had already raised the issue with education CS George Magoha in order to balance teacher allowances in certain areas.
Wambugu stated that there have been instances where teachers in one school receive hardship allowances while those in the neighbouring school do not.
The MP stated that he will work with other Nyeri leaders to pursue the issue and ensure that the allowances are balanced.
He stated that the issue arose during zoning after neighbouring schools, which were only a stone’s throw away, were zoned differently.
“We are pursuing that issue and I want to assure you that we shall follow that issue to the end,” he said.
Nyokabi, for her part, stated that the delocalisation policy must be reconsidered because it has caused teachers anguish.
She stated that the matter was discussed with former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, who is also the Azimio presidential candidate, and that he promised to address the issue if elected.
Raila, according to the former Nyeri woman representative, understands teachers’ plight and has urged them to vote for him in the August 9 general election.
She claims it is unjust because teachers are underpaid, but instead of spending their meagre earnings close to home, they are sent to far-flung areas.
“I think it must be looked at afresh. I promise you that the policy will come back for review so that we give our teachers the best working environment,” Nyokabi said.
She also stated that the dues of retired teachers must be paid adding that there can be no other way or answer to this than to pay them their dues.

The issue, according to Nyokabi, has been raised both in parliament and in a pending court case.
They spoke on Monday at Kagumo Teachers Training College in Nyeri town, where they had convened a meeting with the leadership of primary, secondary, and ECDE teachers to share their vision.
Nyeri Senator Ephraim Maina, who is running for governor, was also present.
