KAKAMEGA COUNTY KNUT BOSS ACCUSED OF BEING MOLE

Teachers in Kakamega Central last week accused their chairman Tom Ingolo of being a Teachers Service Commission’s spy.
Speaking in Kakamega on return from the teachers’ conference held in Nairobi, a section of the teachers accused the official of indulging with one Maurine Munyasia, a TSC employee in Kakamega office.
“The closeness of the chairman and that lady leaves a lot to be desired because TSC appears to be having a lot of information on teachers in the county and we suspect Ingolo is behind all these issues of leakage,” said a Knut official.
They claimed the chairman and the married lady had been seen in social joints across the county swallowing hot spirits up to late in the night.
The officer who pleaded not to be named claimed discontent was brewing in the branch following actions lined up against teachers at TSC, a thing he said is not being handled by the branch officials despite being aware.
“So much is happening and teachers have been left defenceless because it appears the union that is supposed to protect them has its top officers cohabiting with TSC, the teachers’ employer and this is sad and teachers are concerned,” said the official.
The union official said it was sad that attempts to rein in on the chairman have borne no fruit as the branch secretary Ladan Wakhisi is always protecting him whenever matters come up for discussion.
Other teachers who spoke to the press claimed the TSC employee was also fond of asking for bribes from teachers whenever they have an emergency and that she has been hiding files of teachers seeking services and that could be dealt with had she not been involved with the chairman.
The teachers called on the branch secretary to quickly reorganise his office and bring to an end the discontent that is brewing.
