The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) Secretary-General Akelo Misori said that reuniting families will be a major reprieve.

 

 

 

Mr. Misori added that Some of these teachers are nearing retirement,bringing them close to each other will be a good move. Some are also having health issues and being close to family is a major win.

 

 

 

Initially, the Knut had opposed delocalization policy that aimed at evenly distributing teachers countrywide through transfers.

 

 

According to TSC, delocalization has been part of the government’s move to enhance national cohesion and bolster professionalism and commitment in the teaching profession.

 

 

In the last transfer exercises, Secondary school heads were the most affected by the exercise that began on January 1, 2018.

 

 

While appearing before the National Assembly Education Committee then, TSC Chief Executive Nancy Macharia told MPs that the transfers would be implemented gradually until all the objectives of the reforms were fully realized.

 

 

 

Following an outcry from teachers affected, President Uhuru Kenyatta directed the Ministry of Education to review the TSC policy on mass transfer.

 

TSC has promised to start mass transfer of classroom teachers Soon before the end of this year.

 

 

The experienced delays have been experienced due to covid 19 that saw the exercise suspended for sometime .
