TSC CEO Dr. Macharia: 32 teachers expelled this year for sexual offenses

TSC boss Dr. Macharia has revealed that a total of 32 teachers were expelled this year by the Teachers Service Commission, TSC, for indulging in sexual relationships with their learners.

Speaking during the release of the 2018 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education, KCPE, examinations today, Dr. Macharia, said the teachers were expunged from the TSC register in October this year, 2018.

“We can not allow a few people to ruin the future of our children,” Dr. Macharia said while referring to such teachers as ‘pests’.

The CEO indicated that the names of the 32 teachers are on the TSC website and asked employers not to engage the services of such teachers.

Dr. Macharia said another 26 teachers will face disciplinary action for abating impersonation during this year’s National Examinations. Macharia did not have kind words for parents whom she blamed for relegating everything to teachers.

Private schools

She further directed private schools to only employ TSC registered teachers indicating that there is “no room for quacks in teaching centres.”

The TSC boss warned private schools that will continue engaging the services of unregistered teachers and those expelled by the TSC that they shall be de-registered.
