KNEC latest News 2023. Because to salary delays, the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has threatened to pressure its members to abstain from overseeing national exams.
The government took a full year to release compensation for teachers who oversaw the KCPE, KCSE, and KPSEA exams last year, claims KNUT chairperson Patrick Munuhe.
Munuve claimed that after numerous letters to the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC), the payments were still not made on time.
The KNUT leader continued by saying that instructors won’t oversee the upcoming national exams until they receive clear instructions on payments for invigilators.

“We have given the examination council two weeks to pay the bills or face the wrath of the teachers.” We will not invigilate national examinations in 2023 unless the bills are resolved as soon as possible.” Munuve stated
If the delayed payment is not cleared, KNUT has threatened to mobilize examiners to occupy the KNEC office.
The union’s president sneered at the government, claiming it was unfair to withhold teachers’ compensation even after exposing them to unfavorable working circumstances.
”Fair labor practices require that workers who provide services be paid in proportion to the work done and on time. ”The teachers fulfilled their end of the bargain, but all they got in return was neglect,” he observed.
