MANDERA—Non-local teachers have reacted to remarks made by their counterparts in Nairobi, saying it was misleading.
Speaking in Mandera town on Sunday, the teachers said likening Mandera to Shakahola “was unpropriate and uncalled for.”
The rebuttal came days after teachers based in the North Eastern part of the county on Tuesday stormed the Teachers Service Commission headquarters in Nairobi seeking transfers.
In a video shared by Citizen Digital, the teachers expressed that there were increased insecurities in the region and demanded to be transferred to other regions.
“Hatuwezisindikizwa na kifaru(military armed vehicle) kama sisi ni bangi, cocaine ama heroine, hapa tumekataa, na imagine kifaru amekaa nyuma ya basi, inamaanisha nini? Enda ukufe mbele, ” one of the teachers lamented.
