    Requiring teachers to wear uniforms is totally unreasonable. What added value do you get from a teacher by forcing any form of uniform on them? Nancy Macharia should come clear on this matter. Not all reforms are necessary or of benefit to the teaching fraternity. Lets leave uniforms to pupils and students, teachers had their uniforms up to college level.

  2. Definitely she is bullying teachers with much hatred. Tell her we have left her to God to deal with her. She doesn’t mean any good to a Kenyan teacher, having been in annals of history forcifully signing a non monetary CBA, she does even think of how teachers pay is low. Always coming with dacronion policies to oppress teachers more in the name of improving on standards. Lengoibon did well and listened before acting, being a teacher those times was cherish able. Tell her she will leave and a very bad image and evil legacy. She is oppressing teachers not helping them at all. The issue of allowances from SRC, we are waiting to see her input torwads fighting for teachers since teachers allowances are not payed in accordance with terms as in public service act and harmonization in all other professions across same Cadre.
