TSC Action on Teachers
In 2020 Teachers Service Commission struck off names of 29 registered teachers from the Commission’s register after they were accused of having sexual relations with students.
The commissions’ Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia has warned teachers to stay away from children with their sexual advances.
She says the commission will be firm and take stern action against any teacher found in affair with students and pupils.
“In exercise of the powers conferred section 30(1) of the Teachers Service Commission Act Chapter 212 of the Laws of Kenya, the Commission wishes to notify the public that the persons whose names are specified in the schedule herein below have been removed from the Register of the Teachers,” reads the notice in part.
Where the name of any teacher is removed from the register, as per the TSC Act, such a name will not be reinstated except by the direction of the commission.
“A teacher whose name has been removed from the register shall cease to be a teacher for purposes of this Act with effect from the date of such removal,” reads the Act in part.
