Magoha’s Careless Diction-Terming Payment Of BOM Teachers A ‘Non-issue’ Angers Netizens
Netizens are baying for CS Magoha’s blood. Reason? His careless diction.
Education Cabinet Secretary Professor George Magoha’s remarks on the delayed payment of salaries of teachers have elicited mixed reactions.
While addressing journalists after stakeholders’ consultative meeting on Monday at KICD, Magoha noted that all bonafide BOM teachers should have been paid by now. This is after the government approved their payment (BOM teachers) more than six weeks ago.
“BOM teachers should now actually have been paid. The Cabinet and the government approved their payment over six weeks ago and that position has not changed. So let us not waste so much energy discussing non-issues,” said Magoha.
This is the statement that has caused an uproar especially after it came out clearly from social media posts that BOM teachers have not been paid.
CS Magoha and Education CAS Zack Kinuthia’s Contradicting Remarksover the delayed payment of BOM teachers’ salaries
The issue of the delayed payment of teachers has poked holes in the leadership of the ministry of education.
Last week Wednesday, the chief administrative secretary Zack Kinuthia assured teachers that their payment was to be done as soon as possible.
He said, “This is a promise from the office of the CAS through consultation that the money is safely on transit to their bank accounts. It will happen whether it is today, tomorrow or Friday.”
However, contrary to his promise, our dedicated media team has established that these teachers are yet to be paid.
