The students blamed the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) for failing to post teachers in their school despite repeated appeals by your parents, guardians and management board members.

It is pointless for us to stay in the school and assume that when the commission has failed to take over the reins of the institution to teachers employed by the government,” said a student who spoke on behalf of the others.

 

 

However, the school is run by the local primary school, with teachers from the lower institution volunteering to teach the students in their spare time.

 

 

For the past 6 years, 8 teachers have been appointed by the Board of Management (BOM) in the school, which translates to two teachers for each class.

 

 

When county education officials arrived at work before 8 a.m. Tuesday, they were surprised to see students camping outside their offices.

 

 

Mr. Charles Nyuma, TSC County Director, addressed the students and promised that he would deal with the matter immediately.

 

Officials from the Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (Kupet) and Kenyan Action Alumni on of Teachers (Nat) condemned the TSC,the careless attitude of the authorities towards this matter in the last one year.

 

 

Mr Paul Kimetto, Executive Secretary of the Kuppet County Branch, and his KNUT counterpart Mr. Langat noted that despite the institution having 45 registered Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KSCE) candidates, it was staffed by teachers appointed by the Board of Management.

 

The incident, he said, reflects a clear lack of leadership and neglect of duty by TSC managers in the county, which the commission’s top officials must address as soon as possible.

 

 

Over the past three years, TSC has been repeatedly criticized for skewed teacher placement, nepotism and promotion bias in Bomet County, with stakeholders making vain demands to change the guard at the local office.
