Negotiated CBA 2021-2025 Salaries/ Allowances Won't Be Factored If Talks Delay: KNUT Decries

Sossion Blames Fire Incidences on Government For Ignoring Calls to Scrap Boarding schools 

ODM nominated MP Wilson Sossion has called for the scrapping of boarding schools as one of the measures towards ending students’ unrest.

The former Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) secretary-general had a view that the boarding school system is a burden to parents.

“Why are students not burning down classes or laboratories? The government should wake up and face the reality. Boarding systems are costing innocent parents a lot of money,” said Sossion.

“Boarding system should be removed and students allowed being day scholars so that we bring to an end the madness we are seeing now.”

“Unrest in schools has been witnessed since 2008 and the government should not act as if it has started happening now,” added session.

Sossion further accused the government pretending that its not seeing this situation. He made reference to the recommendations of the Claire Amollo report, which according to him, “are gathering dust” and it time to implement them.

“The report made a raft of recommendations that should have been implemented so that unrest in schools is brought an end,” he said.

A total of 11 schools in Bomet and Kericho counties have been affected by the unrest. The latest in Bomet is Tenwek High School which was closed after a night of tension as students threatened to go on the rampage.

Others affected are Chebunyo Boys High School, Koiwa Boys’, Chebunyo Boys and Mogor Secondary School.
