Early Retirement for TSC CEO Dr. Macharia
Early Retirement for TSC CEO Dr. Macharia. The CEO of TSC, Dr. Nancy Macharia, would soon be leaving her position. It is not yet known exactly when she will leave the public service in accordance with the established regulations.
The CEO was originally scheduled to retire in June 2020. The commission decided that it would be better to extend her contract for an additional five years, making it currently valid until 2025.
On the other hand, her status is currently in doubt. This follows a circular that Aisha Jumwa, cabinet secretary for the public service, issued back in February. Her future as the TSC boss is in jeopardy, according to the information in that circular.
Public employees who had already reached the required retirement age were advised not to have their contracts extended by the circular’s relevant authorities.
It is cause for concern because a number of organizations recently decided to prolong the contracts of public officials who had reached retirement age. Both the employment legislation and the constitution are broken by this. The cabinet secretary went one step farther and emphasized the mandated retirement age to the public service commission. She stated that all civil officials must retire by age 60, and anyone with disabilities must retire at age 65.
Due to this problem, the CS decided to halt and withdraw all petitions for officers who had reached the retirement age to continue serving. She went even further and cancelled all active cases.
The outspoken cabinet secretary claimed that if the matter were to come up for debate, it would be properly resolved. It will therefore provide adequate succession management in the public sector.
At first, civil officials were required to retire at age 55. The retirement age cap was raised to 60 after a review in April 2009. By November 2020, a number of public employees had submitted proposals to the public service commission asking for their service to be extended to the age of 65, but these requests had been repeatedly denied.
It has not yet been made known in reference to these new directions if the CEO will step down from her position given that she is older than 60. Everyone has their doubts regarding this topic, which has raised eyebrows among the general public. She might not serve out her additional term until 2025. However, the potential of leaving the office soon exists. Let’s wait and watch how the situation develops.
