Primary school pupils in demo over head teacher’s transfer

Businesses  in  Maralal town came to a standstill after more than 2, 000 pupils of Maralal Primary School held a demonstration over the transfer of their head teacher to another school.

The  Head  teacher, Musa  Abdule  told KNA he had been transferred to St. Paul’s Primary School five kilometres away  from  his present station but would rather remain in his present school where he has worked for seven years.

However, the TSC Director, Suleman  Adipo  said  that the transfer of  Abdule  was final and he was expected to handover  to the incoming teacher from Baragoi Primary School in Samburu North.

Pupils  stayed out of school for six hours hoping to convince the TSC to revoke the transfer of their teacher. But Adipo  said the transfer order was made in Nairobi and he could not vary it.
