The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is set to recover some billions of shillings paid erroneously to some teachers captured wrongly as administrators.
The data used to pay the third phase of CBA was not clean and claimed to have ghost administrators who benefited from the sh. 54 billion payment.
Those to be affected are senior teachers, deputy headteachers and headteachers who were promoted to job groups not theirs.
The CBA which comes to an end this July with the last phase will only be paid to verified school administrators. Recently the teacher employer ordered for fresh count of school heads to help in polishing and coming up with accurate data that will help in CBA phase four payment.
“It has been established that some of you provided inaccurate and misleading data leading to erroneous conversions.” TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia said.
The teacher employer has insisted that the present data can no longer be used to implement the final phase of the 2017 to 2021 CBA.
TSC further directed school administrators to furnish the commission with accurate data on or before June 30.
In a circular dated June 3, sent to county and sub county directors, TSC attached the list of all teachers captured in the data serving as institutional heads for fresh listing.
“You are required to carefully study the list and identify teachers who are not correctly placed or are not performing administrative functions yet their names appear as such in the database.” Said Nancy.
Apart from cleaning the database TSC has asserted that it will recover erroneous payment to teachers who claimed to be administrators.
