KNUT Lugari Branch has protested over the delayed payment of dues to over 200 teachers who invigilated KCPE in Likuyani District last year.
Over 200 primary school teachers who participated in the invigilation of last year’s KCPE exams in Likuyani District have not received their allowances to date.
Protesting the over the delay, Lugari KNUT Executive Secretary Namwinguli Makhanu said it was annoying that eight months down the line the teachers were still patiently waiting for their rightful dues while others elsewhere had been paid by the examinations council.
He warned that the Union was on behalf of the aggrieved teachers giving the exam body a one week ultimatum to pay them failure to which a demonstration will be held to protest the delay.
Responding on that a Ministry of Education Official said the Government regrets the delay adding that all invigilators from the area who had not received their allowances will have their monies before the end of next week.
However, Makhanu pointed out that if by 30th July the teachers would not have been paid Education activities in the area will be paralyzed.
The KNUT official was speaking during the laying of a foundation stone of the Union’s Office at Lumakanda Township. He was accompanied by his vice- chairman Kefa Kisali.
