Teachers affiliated to the Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) in Bungoma County have thrown blames to Teachers Service Commission (TSC) for failing to promote one hundred and thirty-six deputy principals to principals.
Led by Augustine Luketelo county Executive-Secretary Mr Augustine Luketelo they complained of being sidelined by TSC despite having attended the Dec 2019 interviews that took place in all counties.
To their surprise, they claim that TSC has not released the results of the interview up to now despite other counties being attended to.The county branch claims that for ten years their deputy principals have stagnated in the same position even after demonstrating their leadership capacity.
The Bungoma County KUPPET branch has strongly demanded that TSC stops discriminating the 136 teachers. Further, they want the commission to immediately release the interview results and promote the deputy principals before deployment of other principals in their county.
The teachers have threatened not to allow any importation of principals from other counties to Bungoma county should TSC ignore their pleas, adding that no outsider will set foot in their land unless their promotion procedure is honoured.
