A section of ECDE teachers in Bomet have distanced themselves from their colleagues claiming to have received their 18 months’ salaries from the county.

The 127 teachers drown from various ECDE across the county, termed the claims as misleading, as no money has been wired to their accounts.

Kenya National Union of Teachers Branch Executive Secretary Desmond Langat waded into the matter, claiming teachers who recently claimed to have been paid had been bribed.

“Recently, some teachers claimed they had been paid their salaries. The heart of the matter is that ECDE teachers are suffering a lot. Its even shocking that teachers were bribed to address the press,” he noted.

Addressing the press, he castigated the county Education Executive and other Officials for neglecting the teachers whom he says are now suffering a lot.

He also expressed dissatisfaction over the non-remittance of the teachers NSSF contributions by their employer, a trend he termed as illegal.

“It has also come to our attention that the county has not been remitting NSSF and other statutory deductions despite deducting the same from teachers. This is illegal and a union we demand that these problems be addressed urgently,” added Langat.

Langat now wants the teachers’ plight urgently addressed, failure to which he has threatened to mobilize the teachers into downing their tools.

Some teachers while addressing the press two days ago, claimed to have received 18 months salaries’, further heaping praises on the county government for equipping ECDE centers across the county.
