TSC PLOTS TO INTERDICT THE DELOCALISED PRINCIPAL WHO WALKS 20 KMS DAILY FOR EXAMS FOR SPEAKING TO PRESS.

By Amunga Peter.

Tsc has send a SHOW CAUSE LETTER to a headteacher who braves a 20-kilometre round trip daily to deliver exams to her 18 candidates in Trans Mara East, Narok County. TSC has asked her to record a statement over a story published by the Nation on her plight. That is how uncaring our employer is as Teachers in Kenya.

A moving story by the Nation yesterday had estimated that a delocalised Principal teaching in the remote, far flung school, a Ms Magdalene Njoki Kimani walks 20 kilometers daily to pick EXAMS for her school and would have walked a distance of more than 320 kilometres, an equivalent to trekking from Nairobi to Bungoma town, by the time the KCSE exams are over.

This story moved the entire country and made everyone realise the inhumane policies at the Teachers service commission. Ms Njoki KIMANI has to suffer like that as a fellow woman is heading the commission. They demanded action.

Sources indicate that the TSC CEO Nancy Macharia swung into action to save face of her commission by first seeking to distort the story. She got her ground team and Education officials to deny and do what TSC is best known for. PR games.

Consequently TSC officers and those from the ministry of Education summoned the principal to explain why she spoke to the media and allowed journalists to accompany her on one of her 20 km trip.

Nation reports that the officials said Mrs Magdalene Kimani, the Sosiana High School principal, was not authorised to speak to journalists. Can you imagine? With KESSHA now a govt tool silent. With KUPPET compromised, where and how do teachers channel their welfare complaints?

County director disputed that the 20-kilometre trek, was not true saying that the teacher only does nine kilometres a day. Surely. Why would any sane employer allow an employee to walk even 5 kilometers to perform a noble duty like exam management. Shame on you Njeri Macharia.

Trans Mara East Sub-county Director Steve Gachie continued to claim that the story  by DAILY NATION had caused him a lot of trouble with his boses (read Njeri Macharia) who demanding that he verify whether indeed the teacher trekked 20 kilometres daily and if not fire her.

He told the Nation.. “What you are doing is not right. … You people have made me go through a lot of hell. Now I’m being asked if she walks for 20 kilometres. You are exaggerating; it’s not 20 kms.. She will have to write her report. She will have to explain her 20-kilometre trek from the point of where the vehicle drops her. No one has a right to speak on behalf of the ministry…. Blah blah.. nyef nyef…”.

TSC sees what the Principal did as name tarnishing and insubordination.

Typically what the country director was doing is saving face and acting on orders from above. I believe that those who speak the same language with teacher Njoki and who are in top govt positions were angered with the realization of how Nancy Njeri Macharia has made teachers including those from Mt. Kenya suffer via her policy of DELOCALIZATION.

Let be clear. Teachers do not only suffer walking long distances in Kenya to teach. They suffer from selfish bad policies from their employer. Currently they are dying from COVID 19. One major cause of the rising covid deaths among headteachers is DELOCALIZATION. Macharia has made them work without proper allowances or safety measures in far flung regions away from their families and properties, away from medical centers, unattended. Many are now depressed. I can say this without a shadow of doubt. Principals are the most depressed KENYANS at the moment because of NANCY MACHARIA and her commission.

*CONCLUSION*

2022 cometh. BBI cometh. We shall REVISIT the injustices that NANCY NJERI MACHARIA AND TSC has committed to teachers of Kenya as she enjoys state protection. She and her cronies will pay for what we have had to endure. It is now 13 months to a new govt in 2022.

Meanwhile, Ms Njoki Kimani should write a reply to the show cause letter as for speaking to the press. But if she wants mercy, TSC is a corrupt tribal organ. Write it in your mother tongue.

THE SCARECROWS OF ODM AND UDA HAVE NO EFFECT ON MT KENYA REGION VOTERS.

By Amunga Peter

Raila Odinga and DP Ruto have been reduced to scare crows. They are in talks to work together and form a coalition. That coalition will be defeated by One Kenya Alliance. We are calling it,  #TheScarecrowsRetreat.

The ground is too hostile politically for the RARUA formation. They’ve lost support from everywhere. Indeed, they can only be scarecrows.

Truth is, ODM has the support of one region. They can’t scare anyone. They’re busy waiting for Demonstrations, machozi Mondays and Supreme court to hype emotions.Raila Odinga has been blackmailing President Uhuru to endorse him. He even threatened to leave the BBI and Handshake if the government endorses someone else. The President said he will not endorse anyone. Not even his DP RUTO.

President Uhuru warned his Deputy to stop the early campaigns but @WilliamsRuto continued chest thumping. He even invited Mt Kenya MPs to plot a plan to undermine the President. Now DP Ruto wants President Uhuru to endorse him for President.

The ground is hot for Raila and Ruto.Their blackmail to Mt Kenya region has was just a scarecrow which has no impact.Selling Railaruto coalition in Mt Kenya, is like selling nguruwe kwa msikiti. Matisho yao ni bure Kabisa.

We call them the scarecrows.

The only solution is that PRESIDENT Uhuru should engage the One Kenya Alliance and reach a compromise in order to accommodate millions of his supporters and move in one direction. He should not allow The Scarecrows to continue threatening him.

Musalia Mudavadi remains a key ally and compromise presidential CANDIDATE that UHURU KENYATTA will find it easier to sell to My Kenya voters.

DEAN STRATHMORE UNIVERSITY SPEAKS ABOUT MUDAVADI AS FINANCE MINISTER 1993-1997

By Amunga Peter

I came across a comment on social media by a dean of economics who happened to be at STRATHMORE COLLEGE ( today STRATHMORE UNIVERSITY) in the 90s. He is now retired. But he had this to say about Musalia.

“When Mudavadi was Minister for Finance I was in the last three years of his reign a dean at Strathmore college. Everything we were teaching and learning we could see him implement.

Actually, Mudavadi turned the tables round. He declared that jet fuel would be sold in Kenyan shilling. Somehow this forced the lenders to backtrack. I don’t know how it worked but it did. He as the minister for finance was called for talks and sanctions on Kenya were lifted. Among the things we emphasized on and we saw him do included;

1. Combatting hyperinflation,

2. Floating the shilling,

3. Banking sector reforms,

4. Formation of KRA,

5. Privatisation,

6. Creating a free market,

7. Closure of rogue backs,

8. Combatting fraud aka Goldenberg, 9. Debt rescheduling,

10. Growth in GDP, etc.

We as a finance and account related institution at the time learnt a lot from the actions of Mudavadi Musalia as Finance Minister.

I chose from then to just love the man! Listening to him talk about how he can salvage the current state of our economy gives me confidence that yes we can.”..

TALKING POINTS.

Kenyan cartoonists depict Mudavadi as a harmless character waiting to be ENDORSED to the extent that many say he has no bottle for tough political battles. But social commentators and economists including renowned economic journalists are seeing in him an economic power house that can chart Kenya back to economic recovery if he is in Government.

.

Mr Mudavadi is an insider, with a typical Kenyan political pedigree.

A son of a powerful politician, Moses Mudamba Mudavadi, who served as a minister under President Daniel arap Moi. Musalia has cut his teeth in the tough Kenyan Politics by remaining a gentleman of KENYAN politics.

HEADTEACHER ICHINA PRIMARY IN KAKAMEGA COLLAPSES AND DIES AFTER COVID 19 VACCINE INTAKE

By Amunga Peter

Kakamega county has recorded the death of a HEADTEACHER in a school in Kakamega south, Ikolomani subcounty.

He visited KAKAMEGA COUNTY HOSPITAL, got VACCINATED. He had been in good spirits but decided to get the jab before travelling to Nairobi for marking of KCPE and KCSE.

Upon returning to his house, he collapsed and died. The wife, also a HEADTEACHER claims that the vaccine is cause of death.

Another teacher in NAIROBI claims and writes as follows..

“…we lost a family member yesterday after getting the vaccine, he was perfectly fine healthwise until he got vaccinated, palpitations, shortness of breath followed and finally death after the doctors confirmed that that is how the body is adjusting to the vaccine. Last week my cousin lost two of her close friends after getting the vaccine, same symptoms.”

CONCLUSION

In the last three days I have reported 3 cases of teachers dying after getting the Corona vaccine. I don’t WANT to discourage teachers or anyone from getting the Covid vaccine, but..
Is there any other family going through a loss over the same? Where there no underlying conditions, but after the jab, someone gets seriously sick and dies?

ANOTHER DELLOCALISED PRINCIPAL DIES IN KISUMU AFTER COVID VACCINATION

BY AMUNGA PETER.

KISUMU COUNTY, Nyakach subcounty in mourning as a principal called Mr Peter Maina of Rakwaro Mixed High school succumbed after taking the COVID 19 vaccine. Mr. Maina did his form four exam in 1984 and graduated from Kenyatta University in 1990. He hailed from KISII region.

The late principal Mr.Maina was from Kisii, Magena subcounty to be precise. He was delocalised from Maiga secondary in Kenyenya subcounty, Kisii to the highlands of Nyakach in KISUMU COUNTY. He has died lonely and from #COVID19 related complications.

His death comes after another Principal of Maralal who was dellocalised from his home in Kakamega to Samburu died of COVID in a NAKURU HOSPITAL.

The principal of Maralal was living alone and fell sick with no family member around. The wife drove from Kakamega to Samburu to pick her COVID 19 lonely husband and had to drive 300 kilometers to NAKURU to get a Hospital. By the time she arrived, the husband was critical.

The death of Mr. Maina in KISUMU is covid related. But interesting to note, Maina was dellocalised from his home region to the lonely hills of Nyakach leaving behind his wife kids and family. He was living alone. He has died. Lonely, dellocalised and covid positive.

My worry is, is TSC helping our headteachers or is it a monster worse than COVID ITSELF??

REST IN PEACE MWALIMU.

FRED NGATIA SET TO BE NEW CHIEF JUSTICE ACCORDING TO KENYANS

By Amunga Peter

KENYANS on twitter have already started sending Congratulating messages to NGATIA. They believe, Deep state and PRESIDENT UHURU KENYATTA are just using the ONGOING interviews as a smoke screen to hoodwink them as Ngatia is ENTHRONED CJ.

In a tweet, one kenyan said and I quote..

Congratulations Fred Ngatia for your ‘SELECTION’ to the Highest office in the Judiciary.

*Your Connections r impeccable

*Your closeness 2 power unrivalled

*Your strategic Importance extreme

*The system loves u and believes in ua abilities

Congrats in advance

Fred NGATIA defended President Uhuru Kenyatta’s disputed win in a presidential petition filed by Raila Odinga in 2013 and 2017. For this, KENYANS on twitter believe that it is obvious that deep State and state House will push for his win.

The vetting exercise for applicants seeking to occupy the CJ post after Maraga’s exit began on Monday, April 12, Justice Said Juma Chitembwe starting the exercise off as the first interviewee.

Besides Ngati and Chitembwe, others seeking the post are Professor Patricia Mbote, Justice Martha Koome, Justice Marete Njagi, Philip Murgor, Justice Nduma Nderi, Justice William Ouko, Dr. Wekesa Moni, and Alice Yano.

The exercise is scheduled to end on April 23.

But one institution that has come out clearly to oppose Ngatia are the Atheists.

In a letter addressed to the Judicial Service Commission (JSC), the organization says Ngatia’s presence in the judiciary will corrupt its independence given his past engagements with influential politicians.

The atheists opine it was not right to let Ngatia go through the vetting exercise which is currently underway at the Supreme Court buildings in Nairobi.

“We are opposed to the nomination of SC Fred Ngatioa for the vacant position of President of the Supreme Court and the Chief Justice of Kenya,” read the statement in part.
With more than 16 months away from the next general election, the Atheists Society argues it would be tenable if someone with indisputable integrity is given chance to lead the Judiciary arm of government.

The society is of the view that Ngatia could be staged at the Judiciary’s helm as a project to safeguard particular interests, thus ruling him out of the race to succeed retired CJ David Maraga.

WORKERS RE-ELECTED ATWOLI BECAUSE BBI WILL CUSHION THEM

By Amunga Peter.

COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli got another five-year term to lead the vibrant Central Organisation of Trade Unions (Cotu) as the secretary-general after he was re-elected unopposed.

Atwoli was elected unopposed after it emerged that his only would-be challenger, Kenya National Union of Nurses boss Seth Panyako, failed the qualification threshold to run for the seat.

The main reason why Atwoli will remain the workers boss is because he is the brainchild of BUILDING BRIDGES INITIATIVE.

Sg Atwoli has made it clear that BBI is meant to cushion workers and the Kenyan economy from POLITICAL shocks and violence that comes every ELECTIONEERING period.

The position Francis has, he has held it for the last 20 years, which proves the confidence workers have in him.

In the trade union circles, he is a fighter for the rights of workers while in his Mulembe backyard, he is an elder and a kingmaker.

The latest move puts him at the centre of 2022 politics which he has been vocal about, with utterances to the effect that he is privy to the upcoming political realignments.

While addressing workers across the country immediately after his reelection, Atwoli turned to politics and told Kenyan politicians opposed to the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) that the union firmly supported the process and would not allow some leaders to scuttle it.

The COTU boss told Kenyans passionate about the much-hyped national unity to rally behind President Kenyatta and Raila to push for a new constitutional order.

“If we want Kenya to move forward, if we want Kenya to be peaceful, prosperous and cohesive, then we must uphold the proposals contained in the BBI,” said Atwoli.
