*_TSC CEO Dr. Nancy NJERI ACKNOWLEDGES THE WORK OF THE TEACHERS MEDICAL COVER AND directs teachers aged 58 and above to work from home over rising COVID-19; assures them of job safety._*

TSC CEO Dr. Nancy NJERI continues to outshine our Kenyan teacher’s unions in ensuring safety and the welfare of teachers in Kenya.

During today’s during the briefing at KICD by Stakeholders, Nancy spoke SOLOMONIC words stating that those who are 58 years old and above and those with preexisting medical conditions to work from home. This is something we expected Sossion of KNUT or Akello Misori of KUPPET to have demanded for, immediately after the presidential directive. As usual they were playing politics of BBI and KUBBETING with teacher’s lives expecting to catch the eye of  some politician for handouts.

Dr. Njeri did not wait for prompting. She took up the issue and told those at 58 and above not to fear losing their jobs. She said they are protected. She even went ahead and outlined some of the duties they can carry out while at home.

As teachers we are indeed indebted to the medical cover. All we need is more funding and prompt release of funds to MINET and MAKL, the consortium running the cover. TSC is asking all teachers to dial *202*7# to report COVID 19 related cases._* _Further to this the commission has negotiated with the medical provider to have teachers who may get infected with the virus to get treatment under their medical cover. This simply means, teachers unlike doctors and other civil servants who depend on the corruption riddled, moribund dead as a dodo NHIF can be sure of treatment via their insurer, MAKL.
