The Kenya National Union of Teachers now claims that the National Education Management Information System has been hijacked by cartels.
KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion says that the cartels are the ones responsible for the inaccurate data that is in the NEMIS system.
Sossion claims that the inaccurate date has led to the delayed disbursement of grants to schools.
He however supported the ministry’s move to revert to the manual counting saying it will give a more accurate data.
“The biggest issue of NEMIS is that schools are disadvantage in terms of allocation of resources and the fact that the number of students recorded by the NEMIS system is different from the one represented in schools hence poor allocation of funds.” said Sossion.
