Motion To End TSC Delocalization Heads To Parliament As KUPPET Calls For Teachers Pay Rise Under CBA

Omboko Milemba, who represents the Emuhaya Constituency in parliament, will put forward a motion to force the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to stop delocalizing principals.

Delocalization is the concept of sending teachers to work in other counties.

Omboko, the head of the Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET), said that TSC should stop using delocalization to make teachers mad.

Delocalisation is a retrogressive policy that Kuppet is totally opposed to because it subjects many teachers to a lot of suffering,” the Kuppet chairman said. 

The member stated that he has received overwhelming support from his fellow legislators, who are dissatisfied with TSC’s “excessive delocalisation of teachers.”

He told TSC to follow the Collective Bargaining Agreements signed by the commission and teachers’ unions to raise teachers’ pay.

“I want to assure teachers that delocalisation by TSC will come to an end.”

“I am going to table a motion in the National Assembly that will compel TSC to stop punitive delocalization of teachers,” Omboko told teachers during the Kuppet’s annual general meeting for Vihiga county at the Kima Mission School of Theology on Sunday.

According to him, many teachers suffer from stress, and due to delocalization, absenteeism has become a major issue.

“Married teachers risk breaking their marriages,” he said.

“We want TSC to allow teachers to work in their localities because the new CBC (Competency-Based Curriculum) wants teachers who understand their culture and language well for them to teach pupils.”

His Lurambi colleague, Titus Khamala, supports Omboko’s initiative to introduce a motion in Parliament.

Khamala said that teachers have lost out because of delocalization, which needs to stop so that teachers can work wherever they want.

“We want delocalisation of teachers to stop and the CBC to be properly reviewed. CBC has proved to be very expensive and most of the parents cannot sustain it,” he said. 

TSC has been delocalizing and moving teachers over protests from teachers’ unions.

According to the TSC, transfers were per the teacher code of regulations and collective bargaining agreements approved by the commission and unions.
