The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted the education sector in the country ever since Kenya identified the first Coronavirus cases in Kenya.
The government had to completely shut down all learning Institutions as part of the measures aimed at avoiding the spread of the disease in schools. This decision to close schools has proved to be challenging for all stakeholders concerned.
The teaching staff especially those who were employed on board of management (BOM Teachers) terms are the one that has felt the impact of the disease more. This lot has gone for months without salary.
However, the wait for salary payments is finally over after a long wait. The government has made serious its promise to pay BOM teachers after school principals confirmed that the government has finally credited the funds.
In a written short message to Citizen TV’S Trevor Ombija, the principals through their secondary school heads association chairperson Kahi Indimuli, who also doubles up as the principal of Machakos school confirmed late yesterday that the salary was credited.
Indimuli added that all BOM teachers will receive the credited funds any time this week depending on the bank they subscribe to. His confirmation brings to an end months of waiting for the BOM teachers about their pay.
