More than 100 secondary school accountants from Busia county have demanded for a uniformed pay. They said it was "irrational" for the lowest paid bursar to get Sh8000, while the highest receives Sh40,000.
The bursars were speaking yesterday in Busia town, after a one-week workshop for account clerks and bursars. The workers said there is a high employee turnover in schools because of poor pay. They said schools that experience this turnover perform poorly in the national exams.
