Gruesome Battle At National Parents Association as Parents Are Invited To Apply For Elective Seats
A gruesome battle is looming at the national parents association after a section of members began pushing for fresh elections.
This is after the High Court’s ruling last year, which dismissed the current national representatives headed by Nicholas Maiyo.
In his February 3 2021judgment, Justice Anthony Mrima ordered the Ministry of Education to hold fresh elections of National Parents Association (NPA) officials, maintaining that the team led by Maiyo was illegally in office.
Further, another section of the members cites a judgement by Justice Hedwig Ong’udi on May 31, 2022, that they claim also nullified Maiyo’s election.

“The Court directed the National Elections Board (NEB) of the Association to conduct fresh elections within 45 days. We have therefore declared vacant the under-mentioned positions within the Association and call for elections on August 27, 2022, at a venue to be communicated separately to the delegate,” said Moses Nthesi.
Nthesi, who serves as the chairman of the national election board of the latter, also asks parents wishing to vie in various elective positions to submit their applications before August 15.
“Application forms will be obtained from the Board’s Offices on payment of a non-refundable fee of Sh2500,” said Nthesi.
Maiyo, has, however, dismissed the faction, terming them masqueraders who are not part of their association.
“We came into being in light of the Basic Education Act, but those ones exist under the Societies Act. And so, we are two different entities. And in fact, there are so many parent associations in the country like them,” said Maiyo.
Maiyo said that his association only represents public primary and secondary schools.
But in the notice, Nthesi says that they will also have representatives of parents in private schools, higher education and tertiary institutions.
Nthesi also says that his outfit will elect representatives of the special needs school’s sub-sector and also primary, secondary and nursery schools.
“As you can see, we are different entities and we are cautioning them to stop dragging our names in court because we are not them and they are not us,” said Maiyo.
Justice Mrima in the 2021 ruling said that there was no adequate public participation ahead of the elections as some parents were not accorded a chance to vote.
