Teachers Have It Rough and Tough in These 10 Kenyan Counties

Teaching is among the most stressful jobs you can do in Kenya, according to a recent research. Not only is it a stressful career, but also one of the underpaying professions you will ever do in the country. Over the past years, teachers in Kenya have always made headlines for hitting the streets demanding for a better pay. That sums up how stressful and underpaying the profession is.

Today we have listed 10 counties in Kenya where teachers have it rough and tough.  In these counties, understaffing, insecurity, religious conflict, drought and poor fees payment is the order of the day. For instance in Mandera, cases of teachers being abducted by militant groups are no longer news. In Garissa, one teacher leads a class of 197 students while in Tana River there are no classrooms.  Raiders in Turkana County are another nightmare to teachers, for the past years we have seen cases of teachers being killed in Kapedo. Below is a full list of the hardship zones.
