DPP Threaten To Charge TSC Over Teachers’ Suffering In Volatile Areas

DPP Threaten To Charge TSC Over Teachers’ Suffering In Volatile Areas.

Noordin Haji, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), has threatened to charge Teachers Service Commission (TSC) officials for failing to implement policies that protect teachers stationed in dangerous areas.

During a TSC stakeholders forum in Garissa town, the DPP urged the Commissioners to expedite solutions that would be critical in addressing the problems of teachers who continue to suffer as a result of insecurity.

“If you’re not going to address the issues of the teachers, we will become a burden for the whole of Kenya and this problem will come to your own doorstep. We cannot afford to have one teacher in one school, that is just not acceptable in today’s Kenya,” he affirmed.

He slammed the Nancy Macharia-led administration, claiming that the commission is solely responsible for the protection of teachers, but their plight goes unnoticed.

He stated that the current trend is concerning and that the issue must be addressed with the utmost urgency, failing which the entire commission will be dealt with affirmatively.

“Under section 7 of the Children Act, I can charge the whole commission for refusing to give education to Kenyan and to the children,” he noted. 

He also advocated for the establishment of a department within TSC to address the plight of tutors working in high-risk areas.

He stated that the department’s mission would be to find solutions to ensure that all children have access to their fundamental right to an education.

“It is high time that in the North, including hostile areas such as Samburu, we must have a department that will look into that, that will use statistics and data in order to find amicable solutions,” he pointed out.

Haji’s remarks come just days after the government relocated hundreds of KCPE/KCSE candidates who were scheduled to take the national exams the following week. The students were relocated from areas where banditry attacks had occurred, such as Baringo and Elgeyo Marakwet counties.

The decision was made after Rift Valley Regional Commissioner Mohammed Maalim met with Education stakeholders to ensure the candidates’ safety.
