Intern teachers request pensionable and permanent periods from the state.

Dozens of secondary and primary school interns in Kisii want the government to recruit them on permanent and pensionable terms.

The teachers who were drawn from across Kisii County schools said now that their one-year contract in service is coming to a close, the Teacher Service Commissioner’s Commission, should employ them on permanent terms.

At least 1,300 teachers in Kisii alone were recruited in February on internship terms.

Group leaders Duncan Ondieki, Everline Ongwacho, and Everline Mayaka said Monday they are not ready to sign new internship terms adding that they are ready for permanent terms.

“We are asking for a clear explanation of what we shall do come January. For now, we are in limbo as the contracts are coming to an end,” said Ntabo during a press conference in downtown Kisii.

Ntabo said already life was already unbearable under the terms they had been working under.

“An instance is the National Health Insurance Fund to which they do deductions of Sh780 monthly but which is not functional because the contracted insurance is not covering for our medical care,” he told journalists.

The interns would return to the streets to hold protests against the move by TSC to employ younger graduates ahead of them.

Ntabo said already some politicians were already dishing out letters to their kin and close associates.

Everline Ogendo, on her part called for transparency in the entire teacher recruitment process.

She disputed the narrative that over 56,000 teachers had been employed yet only a paltry 10,000 were on pensionable terms.

“It is a fallacy to peddle such narrative when you know too well it is fake,” she stated.
