Baringo,Kenya-The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has been petitioned to effect the transfers of six head teachers who are yet to report to their new work stations.
Kuppet Baringo County Executive Secretary Mr Philemon Bitok said the TSC had delayed effecting the transfers leading to a delay in learning in the affected schools.
He said the head teachers from Oinobmoi, Kapkelelwa, Kituro, Kisanana, Tenges and Uhuru Kabiyet Secondary Schools had received transfer letters early this year, but are yet to report to their stations following a directive from TSC to wait.
“The continued delay to effect the transfers is causing confusion and frustrations among the teachers, students and head teachers themselves. It has also delayed the starting of learning which might affect final examination results,” said Bitok.
The Kuppet official blamed the stalemate on TSC and urged the commission to come clear on the transfers to ensure that learning in the said schools continues uninterrupted.
“TSC should exercise its independence because, there is no relevance for transfer letters to be issued and fail to effect it. The concerned stakeholders should have been accordingly informed concerning the issue for the sake of students,” he said.
Contacted for comment, Baringo County Education Director Mrs Diosiana Ahindukha acknowledged the delay, saying that the TSC was still consulting with stakeholders over the transfers.
“Transfers are complex and need wide consultations with stakeholders which we are doing and once we agree, we will effect it,” said Ahindukha.
She said TSC was transparent on the matter, adding that the stakeholders of the schools were the ones delaying the transfers.
