Big Win For Teachers As Their Employer And Unions Agree On This Matter .

In Kenya, there are over three hundred thousand teachers serving in both primary and secondary schools.

Most of these teachers are serving in public schools while some are serving in private schools. Teachers who are serving in private schools are being paid by the school owners while those professionals serving in public schools are being paid by the government through the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) which is currently headed by Dr Nancy Macharia as its CEO.

Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is an independent body that mandated by the Kenyan constitution to employe, transfer, discipline, pay and promote qualified teachers to the next level.

Teachers nation wide through their unions KUPPET and KNUT have been heard crying of the new policy that was brought to ensure that heads of institutions and the newly employed primary school teachers server outside their home counties.

Most of these teachers are complaining of being separated from their families. Some teachers have complained of their broken marriages due to delocalization.

Since the new government took power former president Uhuru Mwigai Kenyatta’s regime, teachers through their unions KUPPET and KNUT have been pushing the government to abolish teachers’ delocalization.

Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza Alliance team promised teachers to abolish delocalization once they assume power.

In what is now seen as a big win for the delocalized teachers, reports now leaks that the Teachers Service Commission and the teachers unions KUPPET and KNUT have come to an agreement to take back all those teachers working outside their home counties back to their counties come January 2023.
