Some primary school teachers in Thika have not reported to their new stations despite getting transfer letters on Monday. The teachers have accused the newly posted staffing officer for Thika of being insensitive.
The teachers are against the transfer citing high commuter charges. "I work at a school near Juja town and I commute daily from Nairobi, yet I am required to report to Kilimambogo," one of the affected teachers.
They said it is not practical since the teachers too have school going children and the intended transfers may affect their children. "We should have been consulted," said a teacher.
