New Bondo Teachers Training College principal rejected

By Isaiah Gwengi | January 25th 2016

The Board of Management (BoM) has rejected the new principal of Bondo Teachers Training College (TTC).

Lorein Omufuoko was promoted at the beginning of this year to head the institution but the board, through its chairman Aloyce Odek, said she is not fit for the position.

Prof Odek said Ms Omufuoko could not be promoted to head the institution without even serving in the capacity of a deputy principal. "She has been serving in the same institution as the dean of curriculum and this does not qualify her to be the principal," said Odek.

He accused the Teachers' Service Commission (TSC) of trying to impose on them a principal and maintained that the board wanted to know why the former principal was transferred.

The board said they were content with Principal George Obondo, who has since been moved to Narok TTC.

They said it was not the role of TSC to transfer principals. "It is board that is supposed to release the principal once he has handed over, contrary to what was done by TSC," he said.

However, when contacted, Siaya County TSC Director Daniel Cherutoi distanced himself from claims, saying he was not aware of anything.

"The institution's board of management has been doing its communications directly to the TSC headquarters and I cannot therefore explain what happened," he said.
