How TSC is putting teachers to shame
A teacher, Mr Joshua Too, is accusing the Teachers Service Commission of deliberately exposing teachers to shame.
He claims that TSC has always insisted on sending teachersÂ¡Â¯ payslips through the head teachers.
But some head teachers, he says, end up divulging the teachersÂ¡Â¯ pay details to third parties.
Just before the schools closed for April holidays, he claims to have found the head teacher being helped by a "form four leaver BOG teacher" to tear apart payslips from a larger A3 sheet and heard the school head make a comment that annoyed him.
"Mr ... earns more yet he is lazy... you are better than most of these TSC guys," the head teacher allegedly told the Form Four graduate.
"It is usually worse when a teacherÂ¡Â¯s net pay exceeds that of the head teacher as one easily becomes his/her enemy," laments Too.
In this day and age when technology rules supreme, TSC, he says, should avoid shaming teachers needlessly.
"TSC should join the GHRIS- Government human resource information system to enable us get our payslips online just like the other public servants," he suggests.

Ms Joyce Mkaluma has been using Mombasa Road for the past one month and is very unhappy with endless traffic jams at the at the Nyayo round-about.
She blames the mess on traffic police officers at the round-about who she claims do not "open the way for vehicles on the highway heading to the city as frequently as they do for those from Nairobi West, Industrial Area and Upper Hill".
