Kenyan teachers to use Personal Protective Equipment(PPE) when schools open on September.  This is according to the KNUT secretary general Wilson Sossion who is pushing for PPEs to schools.

The SG also wants the BOM teachers to be employed by the Teachers Service Commission(TSC) to reduce the burden as they have not received any coin since the onset of the virus.

Mr Sossion added that the BOM teachers will help in clearing the backlog as well as fast-tracking students learning who are preparing for the end of year exams.

However, the KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion wants teachers, learners and support staff to be equipped with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) if sufficient when the institutions reopen.

He also proposed that schools and colleges that were used as testing, isolation or quarantine centres be disinfected and sanitized by Public Health Officers and given a clean bill of health by the Directorate of Quality Assurance and Standards before being reopened.

He made the recommendations in a letter to TSC boss Nancy Macharia dated June 12, 2020, recommending an overhaul of the commission’s strategic plan between 2019 and 2023.

Mr Sossion wants the staffing model which designates one teacher per class of 50 children in primary schools to be modified saying the current numbers are irregular with the COVID-19 reality of social distancing guidelines and may affect the fight against the pandemic.
