The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education wants the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) to consult all education stakeholders before making new policies.

Meru County KUPPET Executive Secretary Karuti Nchebere accused the council of creating policies without consulting them.

“The council has continued churning out policies without consulting stakeholders. For instance, centre managers are required to pick exams twice per day regardless of the location of an institution. 

We are also concerned that KNEC has continued mistreating our members and this must stop immediately,” said the unionist.

Speaking to education stakeholders in Igoji market in South Imenti constituency, Nchebere said the rates paid to examiners must be revised upwards to a minimum of Sh100 per script.

He said supervisors, invigilators and security officers must be paid promptly after the examinations are over since the money is budgeted in advance.

“Risk insurance scheme must be provided to supervisors and invigilators during the examinations period.

Centre organizers who include principals and deputy principals must be remunerated well. They should be paid Sh3,000 and Sh2,000 respectively. Science and other subjects with practicals should be compensated well,” said Nchebere.

He said they will continue to pursue the issue of salary increment relentlessly until teachers get what they rightfully deserve.
