Two fe­male teach­ers from Marani sub­county were charged yes­ter­day in a Kisii court with con­duct­ing il­le­gal hol­i­day tu­ition. The court heard that Zip­po­rah Kerubo and Ly­dia Nyaboke com­mit­ted the of­fence on Novem­ber 15 at Ge­sieka Academy, con­trary to the Ba­sic Ed­u­ca­tion Act 2013. Kerubo and Nyaboke de­nied the charges be­fore chief mag­is­trate Jesse Nyaga. They were re­leased on a Sh7,000 cash bail each. The case will be heard on Jan­uary 5 next year. Mean­while, the Kenya Na­tional Union of Teach­ers and the Kenya Union of Post-Pri­mary Ed­u­ca­tion Teach­ers said they want teach­ers treated fairly. Kisii county Knut sec­re­tary Joseph Mak­abe, trea­surer Al­bert Ondimu, chair­man Makori Ayega and Kup­pet’s Omari Al­bert and chair­man Okondo Osoro said un­less the Ed­u­ca­tion min­istry stops in­tim­i­dat­ing and ha­rass­ing teach­ers in­vig­i­lat­ing KCSE ex­ams, they might call for a boy­cott.
