“Why Celebrate Teachers And Yet MCAs Are Paid More Money Than Proffessors,” Manyora.
Kenyan Professor Herman Manyora has sparked a debate by emphasizing the significance of educators and their often overlooked contributions. He contends that teachers cannot be fully celebrated on Earth because their true reward lies in heaven, highlighting the profound role they play in shaping society. Manyora’s statement underscores the idea that the recognition of teachers extends beyond mere material rewards.
Furthermore, Manyora draws attention to a striking paradox within Kenya’s compensation system. He highlights that Members of County Assembly (MCAs) receive higher salaries than university professors, a revelation that has ignited discussions regarding resource allocation and the nation’s priorities. This revelation prompts questions about whether educators are receiving the recognition and compensation they genuinely deserve.
As Kenya grapples with educational reform and workforce development, Professor Manyora’s comments serve as a poignant reminder of the intrinsic value of teachers and the imperative for equitable compensation that reflects their pivotal role in shaping the nation’s future.
The tweet by KTN TV News Kenya echoes Professor Manyora’s sentiment: “We cannot celebrate teachers on earth because teachers work for God; their reward is in heaven. In Kenya, we pay MCAs more money than we pay professors. – Prof Herman Manyora.”
