Your 60% Payrise Push Unrealistic, Machogu Tell Teachers

CS Machogu to appear before senators Over Union and Sacco Dues

Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu will be the only official who will appear before Senate Plenary on Wednesday.

Machogu will respond to questions by Nominated Senators George Mbugua, Joyce Korir, Mariam Omar Peris Tobiko and Samson Cherargei (Nandi).

Cherargei wants the CS to state the total amount owed by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to teachers’ SACCOS and Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) and Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut).

The CS is expected to explain why TSC delayed the remittance of union and SACCO dues for teachers.

The Nandi senator has further asked Machogu to indicate when a lifestyle audit was last conducted on senior officers of TSC, including the Chief Executive Officer.
