Speaking in Kapsabet town, minutes after the Nandi County branch elections, KUPPET national chairman Omboko Milemba urged the government to curb the increasing hostility in schools that has seen learners attack teachers.

“As a union leadership, we condemn the unbecoming culture that tends to scuttle the education in the country. Going by recent reports that have hit headlines on students attacking their teachers and leaving them with serious injuries, the government should compensate and offer protections against insecurity eventualities while working within the school compound,” stated Milemba. He urged TSC to offer security to teachers in some regions that are insecure.

At the same time the Kuppet chairman criticised the Education Ministry’s recommendation that students learn under trees to ensure social distancing, terming it ‘ill advised.’ He said this has exposed the government’s failure to provide conducive environment for learning.
