Teachers Hit With Massive Firing Announced by TSC

Banned from teaching for life

TSC CEO Nancy Macharia

The Teachers Service Commission announced that they had sacked 36 teachers on Friday.

In a statement by CEO Nancy Macharia, the teachers were discharged over professional misconduct.

Macharia further shared that their names have since been removed from the TSC register.

This move comes months after the teacher's employer sacked 29 teachers from working over misconduct including sexual relations with students.

In a public notice, Ms Macharia said the teachers will not be permitted to teach in any learning institution across the country for the rest of their lives.

Banned for life

The cases involving the banned teachers were conducted from mid-last year to the end of the year.

The ban on the 29 teachers brings the number of tutors who have been kicked out from the teaching service last year to 151.

Reasons are given for their deregistration range from the desertion of duty, having sexual relationships with students, insubordination, to negligence.

"It is notified for general information that pursuant to Sections 30 (4) and (5), 23 (2) of the Act: Where the name of a teacher is removed from the register, such a person shall not be reinstated except by direction of the commission," the statement read in part.
