Milemba Differs With Misori Over TPD During ADC
KUPPET Chairman Omboko Milemba, who doubles up as the Mp for Emuhaya constituency differed with his counterpart, Kuppet Secretary Akello Misori during the annual delegates conference held in Eldoret from 17th -18th. The two attended the ADC with contrary opinions concerning TPD and how it should be conducted.
While Misori welcomed TPD and even opted to ‘punish’ branch executive secretaries who openly opposed the program, Milemba opposed the program just a few days after it was launched.
Milemba, who had a feeling that teachers are not given the respect they deserve, promised during the ADC to take TSC head on for teachers to be respected and heard. He maintained that even if TPD must be the direction, then let TSC and the government finance it.
“I accept that TPD is legal from the constitution but the same constitution states that TSC shall facilitate teachers, there is nowhere in the constitution where it is stated that teachers should pay money for the facilitation” Said Milemba.
Finally, it was resolved during the conference that:
- Talks between KUPPET and TSC over salaries review must be reopened in January 2022.
- That Government must pay for TPD for teachers to enroll and attend just like smasse and cemastea.
The Delegates held a peaceful election for the positions of three National union Trustees. Those elected were;
- Jacob Karuraa-Eastern Region
- Mohammed Ali Bash -Coast/North Eastern
- Charles Mukhwana-Nyanza/R.Valley/Western
