Tripple Pension Deductions On Teachers Payslips. Patrick Karinga Munuhe, the national chairman of the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT), has vehemently opposed a variety of pension deductions that have been placed on teachers.
The three separate pension deductions that are now in effect were discussed by Munuhe, who also criticized how they affect teachers.
According to Munuhe, the provident fund is the first type of pension deduction and has a 7.5% deduction rate. An established standard deduction is the second type. The third group, in Munuhe’s opinion, is the NSSF (National Social Security Fund). He drew attention to a significant issue with the release of teachers‘ pay stubs.
Loan Access Barrier
Our current paystubs are leaking. stated the national chairman.
Munuhe emphasized the broad implications of these inferences. He called attention to a flaw in the one-third rule that hinders teachers from obtaining loans from various saccos because they fall short of the necessary amount.
“We cannot meet the one-third regulation, so none of these instructors are eligible to apply for a loan in any of our saccos. We have a serious problem. He went on to explain that the situation has brought about significant problems for the teaching profession.
Munuhe claims that the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is to fault for these issues. He berated the TSC for being unprepared to deal with any adjustments to teachers’ pay stubs.
The Teachers Service Commission is being held responsible for this improper conduct. The teachers could have been better prepared if anything had been done to our pay stubs.
Munuhe thinks that a lot of the issues would have been averted if the TSC had adequately anticipated these developments and alerted educators to them.
He went on to argue that the current situation was the result of a 2023 projection that was subsequently contested in court. Despite these legal challenges, the prediction was finally implemented in 2013, which is what led to the current predicament.
