The Teachers’ Service Commission (TSC) on Friday, February 3 posted six new teachers to Itumbe Dok Primary School in Nyamache Sub-County, Kisii County.
All the six new appointees, except for one, were transferred from the neighbouring primary schools, including Gisaiga DEB, Bosansa DEB, Mosasa DOK and Kionduso PAG schools.
One teacher, Odong’a Obedy Nyachong’i, is a new TSC recruit.
The others, who received transfers, are James Ocharo, Wilfred Momanyi, Florence Nyabuto, Isaac Osoro and George Morara.
Their transfer letters, dated February 3, 2023, were signed by Nyamache Sub-County Director of Education James Wanyela.
The new teachers will replace Everline Moraa, Gladys Kenyanya, Angelicia Joseph, Moraa Nyairo, Catherine Mokaya and William Isoka who have since been suspended by the TSC for allegedly administering obscene punishment on Grade 2 pupils.
In viral video clips, the pupils were ordered to imitate acts depicting homosexuality, the TSC said in its interdiction letters addressed to the six.
The suspended teachers will appear before a TSC disciplinary committee to file their defenses, the teachers’ employer said in a statement on Thursday.
The six teachers were arrested on Wednesday, February 1.
On Friday, February 3, a Kisii court ordered that the suspects be remanded for three days as police complete investigations.
They will appear before Ogembo Senior Principal Magistrate on Monday, February 6 for plea-taking.
