The National Assembly’s Committee on Education chaired by Tinderet MP Hon Melly is currently meeting with the Education CS Prof Magoha, the Inspector General of Police and the C.E.O of the TSC. The meeting is meant to discuss the recent Mass transfer of Teachers from the North Eastern region by the Commission.
The Teacher’s Service Commission is first to respond to the Questions raised by the Wajir West MP Hon Ahmed Kolosh, who last week; on the floor of the house, sought explanations why TSC has been transferring Teachers from the Region.
This is the response from TSC, so far;
“Even as we are accused of removing teachers from North Eastern, we did our best to ensure that they worked there, and even interdicted (and later rehired) some who were not in line with their employment terms”, Dr. Nancy Macharia (TSC C.E.O).
“Between 2018 and 2020, there have been sporadic attacks on Non-local teachers by some Locals in these regions, causing the instability of their stay there.”
“We have been portrayed as a heartless employer which has no regard for the wellbeing of our teachers in these regions, while in reality we have done our best to ensure their safety.”
“Since the beginning of attacks on teachers in North Eastern Region, the KNUT and KUPPET have piled pressure on us to transfer teachers from these regions,and even sponsored the teachers to file court cases against the Employer.”
