Unverified data is the cause for delayed BOM teachers’ payment – CAS

Zack Kinuthia, the Chief Administrative Secretary for Education, has attributed the delay in payment of Board of Management (BOM) teachers to unverified data from school heads.

Through a Facebook post on his account, Kinuthia said the data received from school heads conflicts that in the Teachers’ Service Commission records. He said this has forced the ministry to embark on verification of the details, a process he said is in advanced stages.

“What is holding the money is the unverified data that was submitted to us from the field, vis-a-viz the data we have with the Commission. From the onset, I want to say that we received a humongous list from the field, including teachers who are not enrolled with TSC. This means, Heads of Schools sent untrue, or illegitimate data, which meant that money would have gone to the wrong people, or more people than is the reality, denying the genuine beneficiaries the right,” read the Facebook post.

The big question “When will the money be sent?” was however not answered, as he said the payments were subject to completion of the verification exercise.

“By today, verification of all data was at an advanced stage. I was assured that it will be complete and I, duly briefed by close of business Tuesday. This means that I can authoritatively say the money will be deposited to your pocket by a certain date, once I see the final clean and clear data,” Kinuthia added.

The government, through the Ministry of Education had initially promised that money for the BOM teachers would be released by the end of July.

Kinuthia further said he is fast-tracking the matter to ensure the “youth like he is” teachers get the pay.

“This is more of concern to me, because over 90% of these teachers are youth like I am. And I can’t be comfortable and restful while you wallow in distress. I have heard your cries, I have read your painful stories out of over 4 months without pay,” he said.
