Education minister Sam Ongeri has ruled out recruitment of teachers on a permanent basis, citing the current government ban on employment as the reason behind the move. RELATED STORIES Book dealers criticise KIE Prof Ongeri told Parliament that going for intern teachers was the best option for the government to alleviate the shortage of teachers, which now stands at 65,000. He said the option to go for interns aimed to relieve parents of the burden of paying money to schools’ boards of governors or management committees for some of the teachers on their payrolls. He said the boards and committees pay between Sh3,000 and Sh5,000 a month for a teacher. Prof Ongeri told teachers that if “they accept the plan like the nurses did”, they would be paid between Sh10,500 and Sh14,500, “which are not far off the current teachers’ salary scales”. The minister said the Kenya National Union of Teachers and the Kenya Union of Post-Primary Teachers had gone to court to block the new recruitment of intern teachers. The case is still pending in court. “The position that they have taken is not beneficial to their membership, neither is it beneficial to society,” said Prof Ongeri. MPs Martha Karua (Gichugu, Narc Kenya), John Mbadi (Gwassi, ODM), and Silas Ruteere (North Imenti, Mazingira) said the minister ought to find a way to end the stalemate between the unions and the government.
