Schools ordered to release withheld certificates
The Teachers Service Commission has directed all public school head teachers to release any Kenya National Examinations Certificates that had been withheld from students who failed to clear their school fees.
Teachers Service Commission Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia also directed the school heads to ensure that in future certificates are released immediately after they’re received from KNEC.
In a statement sent to newsrooms on Tuesday, the TSC boss directed head teachers to submit to TSC county directors a report on their compliance status by the 29th of this month.
This comes after TSC carried out a re – organisation of schools resulting in the transfer and promotion of principals in Elgeyo Marakwet County.
Confirming the staffing changes, the county TSC director, William Molla, said the affected high schools, include Kipsaos Boys High School, Chebororwa Girls, Sambirir Boys, Chebai Boys, Anin Girls, Queen of Peace and Kondabilet Schools.
Meanwhile, teachers from Garissa County have benefited from a comprehensive medical scheme administered by the AON Comprehensive Medical Scheme and Group Life Cover.
Registered Teachers from Garissa County are already flocking to AON contracted health facilities hoping to benefit from the new medical cover.
Mohamed Dagane, a teacher at Tetu Primary School lauded the move saying many teachers retired without ever accessing health insurance due to bureaucratic complications in the past.
