Confusion reigned Migori town as hundreds of primary teachers from Kuria West were stranded after being left out from national one week TSC Teachers Proficiency Course.
Angry teachers said that even though they submitted their names no teacher from Kuria West was selected for the course while others are benefiting from the course which was started last Monday.
They said they have been joining other teachers at Migori teachers college hoping to get trained but to no avail.
Paul Girwa, the Kuria West Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) branch secretary said they feel isolated and discriminated.
“We want the panel which approved teachers for the course to explain why only Kuria west was left from Migori County,” he said.
“We demand immediate dissolution of the decision panel if Kuria West teachers will not be enjoined in the program which will end early next week,” he said.
Girwa said every sub county were to produce a minimum of 15 teachers and if Kuria West will not be represented then teachers will be completely demoralized
“We are still considering peaceful demonstration to make our complains known to the world since we feel our rights have been violated,” Girwa said
Efforts to reach Migori County Teachers Service Commission director John Bosco for comment were fruitless as calls went unanswered
