Teachers in the country will no longer have to work extra hours if President William Ruto keeps his latest promise.

Ruto stated that his government will begin a recruitment drive for 30,000 teachers in January 2023.

The president stated in Komarock on Wednesday, October 12, that the recruitment drive will be the first phase of the process, with the ultimate goal of hiring 116,000 teachers.

“I understand that we have a huge shortage of teachers in the country. And we agreed that during the elections that we will consistently and deliberately reduce the gap between the number of teachers in the school and those supposed to be in the school,” he announced.

“Beginning January, we are going to begin phase one. We will recruit 30,000 teachers. We are going to recruit both permanent and pensionable as well as those on internship basis,” Ruto added.

Furthermore, Ruto stated that discussions with the Teacher Service Commission (TSC) to draft a recruitment strategy were already completed.

Furthermore, Ruto stated that the government will have recruited enough teachers to be distributed in all schools across the country within five years.

Ruto recognized the efforts of qualified volunteer teachers in the schools at the Komarock Primary School opening.

He also stated that the government will look into ways to increase the number of primary and secondary schools.

“We want all our children to learn in an environment where there are enough classrooms and enough teachers and we can have the meaningful acquisition of knowledge in our schools.”

The Ruto administration has previously emphasized the importance of improving the country’s education system, which was evident when he unveiled the Competence Based Curriculum (CBC) task force.

Notably, the government has hinted at keeping outgoing Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha on board.

“You have expressed patriotism that though you are outgoing, you did not just leave other people to come and take care of the Ministry. I want to assure you that we are not in a hurry to get rid of you,” deputy president Rigathi Gachagua stated.
