44 Teachers Fired In Kenya Over Indiscipline

Reading Time: 1 minute

Kenya's Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has deregistered 44 teachers over alleged disciplinary-related issues.

In a statement, the commission said the teachers were removed from the register of teachers and banned from teaching in any learning institution.

"Pursuant to section 30 of the TSC Act (2012), the commission wishes to publish names of teachers who have been removed from the Register of Teachers. "Further, under the law, these teachers cannot engage in teaching in any learning institution," read part of the TSC notice.

Section 30 of the TSC Act (2012) stipulates that the commission may remove the name of a tutor on the grounds that they are deceased, have a physical or mental illness, obtained registration through fraudulent means, and were convicted of either a sexual or criminal offense upon which TSC deems the teacher to be unfit.

"Subject to the provisions of this Act, the removal of a teacher's name from the register shall be notified by the commission to the person by registered mail addressed to his or her last known address," read part of the TSC Act.

The 44 teachers can appeal the decision at the commission.
