STATEMENT ON LOSS OF TEACHERS TO COVID19

On behalf of the Kenya Women  Teachers Association,  I   condole with the families of the departed  teachers and express  my sympathy  with  their relatives,  friends, and communities.

Mr.  Mohammed  Khamis, Tononoka  Secondary  Principal, Ms.  Martha Ouma,  principal of Oyugi Ogango in  Migori county, Mr. Alfayo  Munala,  Former principal  Kivaywa  Boys High School, Madam  Ruth Khaukwa,  City Primary  School.

They were highly dedicated teachers  who have left gaps that will always  be felt by all those who were on the receiving end of their professional efforts  and dedication.

KEWOTA  believes that teachers  are highly valued  members of society because their professional effortsaffect the fate of the world. When a teacher is lost, the community loses,  and the country  loses.

The Covid19  Pandemic  is unprecedented and has affected every  single person in the world. We will have time to rebuild the economy.  We will  have time to continue learning,  but the loss of learners  and teachers  is not something  we can afford.

KEWOTA, therefore, urges all Education  Stakeholders  in both the private and public sector to mind the lives of learners and teachers and their families,  before the rush to get institutions back up and running.

KEWOTA  is also reaching out to TSC to pay teachers risk allowance  until the pandemic curve gets flattened.

May the Almighty grant peace and strength  to the families of the deceased.

Ms.  Benter Opande,
Chief Executive  Officer/General  Secretary,
Kenya Women Teachers Association.
