    KUPPET demands that TSC improve teachers’ medical coverage.

    Published on

    In a letter to the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), the Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education (KUPPET) argued for improved health coverage for teachers.

    Teachers and other essential stakeholders were not included in the present medical coverage, the union said.

    The teachers’ commission was also accused of having influence over which insurance companies were made available to teachers.

    We cannot have teachers constantly complaining about medical coverage. If a teacher becomes ill, they are expected to return to the classroom within seven days.

    Omboko Milemba, the union’s Chairman, lamented the issue.

    There are approximately 300,000 teachers on the government payroll, thus the union has requested that TSC look into other insurance providers.

    The union’s deputy secretary general, Moses Nthurima, advocated for the teachers and other interested parties to be included in policymaking.

    When this policy was enacted, teachers were not engaged, despite the fact that there is legislation that requires important parties to participate before a policy is implemented. We are demanding that teachers be included in decision-making.

    Nthurima stated.
