Tsc BLOGGERS have ATTACKED me like mad dogs for laying the blame of a female TEACHER walking 20 KMS to the container to pick EXAMS.
The design of National exam administration is such that EXAMS SAFETY IS EVERYTHING. SAFETY of teachers who ADMINISTER or grade those exams is nothing. The current 2020 exams act is such that TSC was ropped into exam management to discipline, fight and control teachers who are usually contracted by KNEC to ADMINISTER the exams.
If you want to know the role of TSC in exam management, ask any center organizer or invigilator. If you are late by a minute, TSC… I SAID TSC will not only replace you, it will INTERDICT you. Not KNEC or MOE. TSC is the big brother used by KNEC and MOE to force, cajole and place inhumane conditions on teachers on behalf of govt to ensure safety of exams.
I is the Center Manager a HEADTEACHER who must on his own find means to and from the container where exams are kept. In the case of Njoki KIMANI, she walks from her house ten kilometers away from the container in the forests and game reserves of Maasai Mara to the container. It is from the container that the GK vehickles carry her and others to deliver the exam to the candidates in her school. After the exams are done the slave that is Njoki and her other slaves called principals are carried back to the container to return the scripts.
Once the exams for the day are safely delivered, Njoki is on her own. She then has to walk 10 kilometers alone back to her house.
NOTE: ONCE exams are in the container, nobody GIVES A DAMM or cares about the TEACHER. She can walk, run, be eaten with lions or contract covid 19. TSC DOES NOT CARE.
EVEN her security is her own shit. Bora madam asharudisha mtihani ambao ndio ‘muhimu’ kuliko maisha ya mwalimu. KNEC will do anything to safeguard the exam and for it to reach on time but NOBODY including the teachers employer TSC will bother to find out just how these principals reach the container at 5.30am and how they leave for their homes after returning the scripts.
It is worse during practicals where some schs go upto very late because of many sessions due to small or ill equipped labs . I respect principals Iknow what they go through. I can identify with their situation. That is why I feel, Kahi Indimuli and his KESSHA thing need to speak up or they disband the thing.
A good employer will listen to what I am saying and take it seriously. Instead, Nancy Macharia is hiring BLOGGERS to INSULT me. The commission has killed unions,has compromised others and has made fellows like KEPSHA and KESSHA stooges. Shame.
As I said.. 2022 cometh. Teachers … Freedom is coming. Njeri and her commision will pay.
