TSC Fires 73 Teachers Over Disciplinary Issues. The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has fired 73 instructors after various disciplinary actions.
The names of the fired teachers, along with their TSC numbers, disciplinary case numbers, and date of termination, were made public by Nancy Macharia, CEO of the teachers’ company, in a Gazette Notice on Friday. To see the names, have a look at the Friday Gazette notice.
She said that as of the date of dismissal, those identified must stop working as teachers.
The Board of Management (BOM) expelled ten of the 73 fired teachers.
The TSC states that teachers are not permitted to teach unless they are certified under the Teachers Act.
This implies that they are not permitted to teach or assist in teaching at any school, as per the Code of Regulations for Teachers.
“A person shall not engage in the teaching service unless such person is registered as a teacher under this Act,” according to one section of the Act.
“Where a teacher’s name is removed from the register under this Act, such name shall not be reinstated unless directed by the Commission.”
Macharia advised schools against hiring unregistered teachers, failing which they would be guilty of an infringement and face a fine of at least Ksh100,000 or a two-year jail term, or both.
A permanent and pensionable appointment may be terminated by the commission by giving three months’ written notice or by paying one month’s basic pay in lieu of notice.
In situations involving a temporary assignment, benefits from the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) are administered in accordance with NSSF Act Cap 258.
A male instructor who made contributions to the WCPS is qualified to receive a refund of his contributions.
