KUPPET and KNUT Tells Delocalized Teachers to Apply For Transfers, Send Details For Tracking
Teachers who are victims of delocalisation and are wishing to be transferred back to their home stations can now apply to be transferred to their preferred regions.
This new development follows an announcement by Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) that they have agreed with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to resolve all issues regarding delocalisation of teachers.
Addressing the press on Thursday, Kuppet Secretary General Akello Misori confirmed that they agreed that teachers who were transferred to areas they did not apply for be re-transffered to their preferred regions.
Addressing a different forum, KNUT secretary general collins Oyuu also instructed members who were affected by delocalisation to send their details to respective executive secretaries country wide.
According to Misori, the retransfer process has already begun and will be effected for delocalised teachers who would wish to go back to areas their original areas or preferred ones.

This came after a series of engagements with TSC, where an understanding was reached that delocalised teachers be re-routed to their preferred regions of service.
Misori further pointed out that they agreed there will be no more delocalisation of teachers by the government.
Consequently, teachers can now start online application through the TSC website with the transfer process set to be acted upon starting January next year.
Misori confirmed the union’s awareness that many teachers were affected by the delocalisation programme after being taken to places they did not want to go to and that this is the time to give the affected teachers a chance to apply to be transferred to areas of preference.
“With this, the hue and cry that marked the delocalisation policy should come to an end. We realised that addressing the teachers’ issues has been taken as a normal thing,” said Mr Misori.
“The window period of up to January, 2023 is to avoid disruption of the ongoing school calendar. Going forward, we have said no to delocalisation,” he added.
Kuppet national vice chairperson Mr Julius Korir said that teachers who had been transferred without their concurrence and want to be taken back can now take advantage of the new development.
He said the teachers should indicate where they want to go and supply the Union with a screenshot of their application form.
KNUT secretary general collins Oyuu has also instructed members who were affected by delocalisation to send their details to respective executive secretaries country wide.
