Relief as State Promises to Release BoM Teachers’ Salaries

Some 43,000 teachers employed by
Boards of Management (BoM) will be
smiling all the way to
the bank starting tomorrow.

Good news for the
teachers comes after the government
promised to start paying their outstanding
salaries.

Education Chief Administrative Secretary
(CAS) Zack Kinuthia
yesterday said the
government will disburse Sh1.72 billion
lump sum to cover
the teachers salary for
the last four months.

Each teacher will get
Sh40,000. He con-
firmed the funds are already being channeled
to the teachers’ respective bank accounts.

“This is a promise
from the office of the
CAS through consultation that the money
is safely on transit to
their bank accounts. It
will happen whether it
is today, tomorrow or
Friday,” said Kinuthia,
when he inspected
Kandara Technical
Vocational Centre in
Murang’a county.
He said the delay to
pay the BoM teachers
was occasioned by
submission of inaccurate data by school
heads, which could
have seen the government lose Sh2.5 billion.

He said head teachers had submitted a list of 106,000 teachers, which means the

government could
have ended up paying
at least 63,000 more
teachers un-procedurally.

“The ministry has
been trying to pay BoM
teachers as per the recommendation by the
President but this has
not happened due to
technical hitches,” said
Kinuthia
