Nyamira County Secondary Schools in Leadership Crisis
Nyamira County Secondary Schools in Leadership Crisis. In the majority of the secondary schools in Nyamira county, a leadership crisis is coming as a result of the retirement of the majority of the principals.
Job Oira, the chairperson of the Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association (KESSHA) for the county, lambasted the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) for taking too long and moving slowly to replace retiring principals.
Oira claims that the two years had gone by with no replacements for school principals who have retired.
He said that the majority of secondary school administration is currently managed by deputy principals functioning in an acting capacity.
Unfortunately, most of the deputies who are serving as head teachers do not meet the requirements to be taken into consideration for promotion by the employer, according to Oira.
Speaking at the award ceremony and educational day on Friday at Nyambaria High School, Oira pleaded with TSC to take immediate action to ensure that the retired principals are replaced in order to avert the administrative crisis.
Lewis Nyakweba, the executive secretary of the Nyamira County Kuppet, bemoaned the high proportion of teachers who have remained in their current positions without advancement.
