Bungoma County Kuppet branch officials have expressed their disappointment over the manner in which the Teachers Service Commission conducted the exercise of promoting deputy principals to positions of principals saying those who hail from the County have not been captured.

Led by the branch Secretary Augustine Kundu Luketelo, the officials said after conducting thorough interviews in December last year, it has come to their notice that no teacher from Bungoma apparently has been successful.

He said the commission needs to come clear on the exercise saying they will not accept teachers coming to head institutions in the county from other counties yet no teacher from the county has been elevated to head institutions elsewhere.

“We have qualified teachers who are holders of masters, degrees, diplomas and deserve to be elevated to their desired positions and the commission needs to be well advised on how to handle the issue,” he said.

Luketelo also accused the commission of stagnating the progress of teachers in job group ‘L’ saying majority have served in the position for more than fifteen years saying they need to be elevated to job group ‘M’ with immediate effect.

He was flanked by branch chairman David Barasa, secretary Rebbeca Masibayi among other branch officials who vowed not relent on issues affecting teachers.
