Al­lowance taken off spe­cial needs teach­ers’ pay

The Star (Kenya) - - News General -

Spe­cial schools teach­ers will miss out on the Sh10,000 spe­cial al­lowances for Oc­to­ber. The Kenya Union of Spe­cial Needs Ed­u­ca­tion Teach­ers sec­re­tary gen­eral James Torome (pic­tured) said he has re­ceived com­plaints from teach­ers that the spe­cial duty al­lowance is not on their payslips. He said it as an er­ror the TSC “should cor­rect im­me­di­ately”. But TSC head of com­mu­ni­ca­tion Ki­humba Kamotho said the miss­ing al­lowance is a rou­tine ex­er­cise done ev­ery three years to vet teach­ers and it will be re­paid. Torome said the TSC should vet teach­ers with­out omit­ting the al­lowance.
