KA Technologies Still Distributing TM1 Laptops To Teachers Despite Court Injunction

Mr. Stephen Desu, the founder of Innovative Teachers has disclosed that KA Technologies Ghana Limited, the manufacturer of Teachers Mate 1 laptop is still distributing laptops to teachers amidst court injunction placed on them weeks ago. 

In a press briefing sighted which was shared on the union's social media platform yesterday, the founder of Innovative teachers revealed that the producer is disobeying court orders by producing and supplying TM 1 laptops to teachers across the country. This, the leader has noted, is a gross contravention of court orders. 

According to Innovative Teachers, the idea to distribute laptops to teachers at a subsidized cost comes from the three giant teacher unions — GNAT, NAGRAT and CCT-GH. He added that these unions also suggested KA Technologies Ghana Limited to the Ministry of Education to manufacture and distribute the laptops to 350,000 teachers in Ghana. 

Meanwhile, the founder disclosed that the laptops have not been certified by the laws of Ghana and thus, the machine is of low quality to be used by teachers. Mr. Desu believes that the three major teachers unions are the reasons why teachers are using TM 1 laptops when of course they could have contracted world trusted brands in the production of laptops for teachers such as Dell, HP, and Lenovo. 

Aside that also, Mr. Desu revealed that it is illegal for the Controller And Accountant General's Department to deduct monies from teachers professional allowance which is meant to be used by the teacher for the cost of professional trainings or workshops to be organized by NTC approved consultancies. 

It will be recalled that the Controller And Accountant General's Department released a statement last week to clear the air that the GES was the one who authorized them to deduct GH¢509 from teachers' allowance as the 30% cost component being borne by teachers.

Teachers were angry at the Controller and Accountant General for deducting more than GH¢ 1,000 from their November salary and the illest of it all was the GH¢100 deduction for NTC license which was to be paid by the employer as agreed long ago.
