Teacher who was served with transfer letter while in hospital has finally spoken. In a statement released by the Daily Nation News, Mr Nelson Kirui was served with his transfer letter at a hospital in Nakuru County. A thing that has sparked alot of reactions from people across the country.
The transfer letter was delivered to him by TSC curriculum support officer, CSO for Sugoi Zone Nicholas Ndar and Kaptich primary school headteacher Silas Biwott on Thursday last week.
They had driven from Eldoret to Olenguruone sub county hospital in Nakuru County, to find mr Kirui, who was waiting for his wife to deliver a baby.
“You can imagine they had to bring my transfer letter all the way from Eldoret where I work, to serve me in Olenguruone sub county hospital in Nakuru, a distance of about 200 kilometres. It is so heartless.”
Therefore the move has been termed as an act of impunity, cruelty and intimidation to silence the Kenya National Teachers Pressure Group from registering it as a union.
Mr Nelson Kirui, from Uasin Gishu County, who is also the Rift Valley representative of KNTPG, yesterday said that he was shocked to receive a call from his headteacher and the official, asking him to step outside the hospital and collect his transfer letter.
