Immediately after passing of the motion to end delocalization which he sponsored, now Luramba Mp Titus Khamala says he will present yet another motion to impeach the TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia.
The legislature who presented the motion “Review of Teacher Deployment Policy” which was voted overwhelmingly by all Mps says he will now start a motion to change the TSC leadership.
“Iam looking at a motion of impeachment , Parliament may be going for the CEO of the Teachers Service Commission,” said Khamala outside Parliament bulidings yesterday.
However he said he will do this after consulting various education stakeholders on how it will be done.
He said he will talk to teachers unions and other bodies to collect their views before presenting the motion.
“Right now am consulting stakeholders, am talking to Kepsha (Kenya Primary School Heads Association), Kessha (Kenya Secondary School Heads Association), am talking to Kuppet and Knut and am also looking at different education stakeholders,” he said.
The Mp also said he will involve Ministry of Education officials on their view and suggestions before taking the TSC leadership head-on.
“Am also in talks with Ministry of Education officials I want to get facts and I want to get sufficient grounds and I will begin working on a motion so that their can be good leadership at top of TSC which respect teachers,” he added.
Yesterday the Mps passed the motion to end delocalization. Some amendments were also made to guide teacher recruitment and deployment exercise.
TSC was ordered to review its teacher recruitment policy so that the employment of teachers t start at zonal level.
“Review the teacher recruitment policy with a view to devolving it to zonal level as the point of recruitment,” read the motion.
The Commission was also ordered to initiate a comprehensive review of the teacher deployment policy with involvement of teacher in order to make the policy consistent with International Labour Organization (ILO) and UNESCO laws and practices on teacher management and deployment.
The House ordered TSC to immediately reverse the ongoing delocalization of teachers.
All the problems the teachers have ,,the poorly paid teachers especially on the lower cadre, delocalization,,,no promotion,n stagnation,the root cause is that CEO you call Nancy.
Imagine a teacher who has a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree and a PHD earning the same salary with a teacher who has only a P1 certificate.This is insanity. The CEO must go! We’re tired
Teacher staying on acting capacity for 5 years disaster and cannot proceed to D1 D2; D3 just like their comrades in secondary who are proceeding well.
