Kindiki Directs TSC to Listen to and Serve the Following Teachers as Soon as Possible
Kindiki Directs TSC to Listen to and Serve the Following Teachers as Soon as Possible. Kithure Kindiki, the Interior Cabinet Secretary, has made many proposals to the education sector.
These recommendations are intended to protect instructors who work in arid and semi-arid areas such as the North Rift region.
On Wednesday, during his appearance before the Education Committee, Kiniki requested that the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) grant aircraft tickets to non-local instructors in the areas during school opening and closure.
According to the Internal Security CS, al-Shabaab militants typically target teachers on the road at school opening and closing times.
According to Kindiki, this step will improve teachers’ safety.
Kindiki suggested that the teachers’ employers consider paying for aircraft tickets for the teachers in Mandera County because road transit is riskier.
According to history, instructors are attacked while traveling because the distance between Mandera and Nairobi is approximately 1,100 kilometers, making it extremely dangerous.
CS. Kindiki also advocated a shorter duration of duty for non-local instructors in the areas.
TSC deployment of teachers in the locations for an extended period of time has a negative impact on their mental health as the attacks continue.
Kindiki advised TSC not to keep non-local teachers in the area for too long since it increases their mental stress and increases their chances of being absorbed and recruited into some of these networks.
It was also suggested that TSC reorganize teachers stationed throughout the region, with the goal of placing local instructors in vulnerable locations and non-local teachers in comparatively safe places.
TSC should also be encouraged to work with security agencies when deploying non-local teachers to hotspot locations.
Furthermore, scholarships should be provided to local students from Northern Kenya so that they can teach in their own communities.
Teachers welcomed the above move, hoping that the suggested adjustments will be implemented.
