Kenya: Teachers Told to Help Enact Laws

Teachers Service Commission county director Don Bosco Odongo has advised teachers to aggressively implement the constitution. He also urged them to familiarise with the devolved government

"The Ministry of Education is effectively devolved with county offices already functioning which teachers should use to channel their issues and challenges to the government," Odongo said.

Edward Obwocha, the secretary in charge of secondary schools, asked newly-employed teachers to join Knut or Kuppet to give them a conducive bargaining power.

The two were speaking to members of Kuppet at a hotel in Isebania on Saturday. The meeting was attended by union secretaries Eliud Otieno from Homa Bay, John Obonyo (Migori) and Kisii's Ben Nyaundi among others.
