We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

A Teachers Service Commission survey released on Wednesday reveals that 10 primary schools in Mashuuru Sub County were affected by the suspension of teachers.

Kajiado County TSC director, Jamal Ahmed, at the same time, said disciplinary action has already started on all the 58 suspended teachers on Monday.

All those suspended had allegedly failed to join others in participating in the training of teachers on competency-based curricular held between April 22 and 24.

Others, according to Ahmed, were issued with show-cause letters after allegedly inciting others against attending or disrupting the exercise.

Ahmed said all the head teachers and their deputies in 10 schools in Mashuuru zone had been replaced on Wednesday morning as normalcy had returned to affected institutions in the zone.

“We have replaced all the 22 head teachers and their deputies. We have also posted four teachers and above in all the schools found to have no teachers due to suspension letters. Those we have posted will remain permanently on those institutions,” said Ahmed.

Kajiado county commissioner, Joshua Nkanatha, said his office worked closely with the Ministry of Education to ensure the safety of the newly posted teachers.

Nkanatha said that his office will continue liaising with the County TSC office in monitoring those claimed to be inciting the newly posted teachers against remaining in their stations.

On Tuesday, TSC CEO, Dr. Nancy Macharia, in a statement to newsrooms, said Mashuuru was among areas in the country that recorded the poorest participation during the training of teachers on the new curriculum.

At the same time, Macharia said the neighbouring Sultan Hamud, which is also in Mashuuru Sub County, recorded 100 per cent through the four-day training.

She said on receiving media reports of the suspended 58 teachers from various primary schools in Mashuuru Sub County, she dispatched TSC field officers to the ground to do an audit on the actual staffing situation.

“Already, some teachers have been moved to schools with a significant deficit. The commission is, however, aware that some union officials are moving round inciting teachers who have been posted not to report,” said Macharia in the statement.

She said those union officials inciting other teachers against taking up their new posting positions intend to exaggerate and magnify the situation.

“The commission will not hesitate to take action on any official inciting the teachers. It is reiterated that teachers in public schools are paid through taxpayers’ funds and are answerable to TSC and not unions,” the TSC boss said.

But Kajiado County Knut executive secretary, Elly Korinko insisted that he has never incited any teacher against taking courses offered on CBC.

“I am against the way the county TSC office issued show cause letters to the teachers on April 9 and expected them to respond on the same day. I also feel they attempted to intimidate me by suspending teachers that come from my home ground,” said Korinko.

He told the county TSC office to quash unconditionally all the suspensions of teachers, failure to which it will construe to mean “they are seeking to replace Maasai teachers with those from the county,” he said.
