This is What has led TSC to Suspend the Delocalization of Teachers

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) suspended the delocalization of teachers due to the rising cases of COVID-19 across the country.

While at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD), TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia said that only transfers that natural attrition will necessitate shall be effected.

The TSC CEO was attending a stakeholders’ meeting at the KICD.

“We have made sure that teachers remain stable where they work by stopping transfers. Only those transfers that will be forced on us due to natural attrition or other factors will be effected,” said Dr. Macharia.

According to the TSC CEO, 158,678 teachers have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination jabs. Besides, Macharia implored teachers who have not gone for vaccination against COVID-19 at all to do so quickly while revealing that 73 teachers have so far died as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I urge teachers who got the first dose to take advantage of the ongoing second dose vaccination exercise in order to get fully immunized,” said the TSC CEO.

“Fellow teachers, let us take the ongoing immunization exercise seriously since COVID-19 is not sparing anybody. For instance, we have lost 73 teachers so far to the virus since it the first case was reported in the country. Thanks tour medical insurance cover, 454 teachers have fully recovered,” added Dr. Macharia.

As schools have reopened, the TSC CEO said that teachers are required to put on face masks and wash hands regularly with soap and water or, as an alternative, use sanitizers.

Following the COVID-19 protocols will go a long way in helping the learners to follow the example of their teachers and ensure COVID-19 cases are reduced significantly.
