Martin Aluga started this petition to Engineers Board of Kenya (EBK) & Institution of Engineers of Kenya (IEK)

This petition is for all the unemployed Graduate Engineers (GEs) and the Senior Engineers (SEs) aged above 70 years to be exempted from paying annual subscription fees and all the levies required by both Engineers Board of Kenya (EBK) & Institution of Engineers of Kenya (IEK).

Pursuant to Article 49(3), An employer shall not employ or engage a graduate engineer in any work unless that graduate engineer is under the supervision of a professional or consulting engineer. We have to nearly 20,000 GEs with only about 2000 Professional Engineers. If GEs aren't employed or under Professional Engineers, how can they afford to pay the fees? Therefore, it is illegal for EBK and IEK to collect fees from GEs not under PEs and unemployed GEs. They may be borrowing or stealing to be able to pay the annual fees.

For the SEs aged above 70 years, most of them have retired from active employment. Exemption to pay for the annual fees will also be recognition of their contribution to IEK and EBK. For those who want to continue contributing, it may be treated as a donation to IEK and EBK.

Please sign this petition. Let's get justice for GEs and SEs.
