Commission Strikes 41 Off Teachers' Roll In Kenya

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has de-registered 41 teachers for having sexual relations with students, insubordination and negligence.

Through a gazette notice, Commission's Chief Executive Office Nancy Macharia, stated that a teacher whose name is removed from the register of teachers ceases to be a teacher with effect from the date of removal and is not allowed to teach in public or private schools.

"Where the name of a teacher is removed from the Register of Teachers, such a person shall not be reinstated except by direction of the Commission. A person shall not engage in the teaching service unless such a person is registered as a teacher under the Act," she stated.

She added that an institution that hires an unregistered teacher is liable to a fine of not less than 100,000 shillings or imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or both.

"Regulation 18(1)(c) of the Code of Regulations for Teachers read together with Section 45 of the Act further provide that any person who not being a teacher under the Act, teaches assists in teaching in any school or, suffers or permits or employs in any school a person not being a registered teacher, shall be guilty of an offence and liable to a fine of not less than Sh100, 000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 2 years or both," she added.
