Disappointment as Heads instructed to Wait Longer For Transfers
This follows information from the Kenya National Union of Teachers that TSC will have to find vacancies before approving their transfers.
According to Knut secretary general Collins Oyuu, consultations made with TSC will bring an end to the ‘unfair’ delocalisation.
He confirmed that TSC so far has received 547 applications.
“The first batch of applications was made and we know we will receive more,” he said.
“We want appointments and promotion of principals to be done within the counties they are in and not far.”
This comes days after Kuppet secretary general Akello Misori said teachers who are comfortable in their current stations are free to retain them.
Misori was speaking during a press briefing last Thursday.
“We have agreed with our employer that all teachers who were delocalised should apply for transfers,” Misori said.
The teachers have been asked to use the remaining weeks of the third term to submit their applications.
“We have three national exams in waiting so instead of interfering they can express the interest then it will be dealt with in January,” Misori said.
