Big Blow To Teachers As TSC Reviews ASAL And Hardship Areas

Teachers who are serving in Arid and Semi-Arid Land (ASAL) areas have received a big shock after Teachers Service Commission (TSC) reviewed and enlisted new areas as hardship areas.

The move resulted to some areas being totally removed from the list of ASAL and hard to staff areas.

In the new 2021-2025 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) which was signed by Kenya National Union of Teachers, the new Arid and Semi-arid list and hardship areas include the following: Garissa, Isiolo, Kwale, Lamu, Mandera, Marsabit, Samburu, Tana-River, Taita-Taveta, Turkana and West Pokot Counties.

Others are Baringo North, Tiaty East and West Marigat Sub-counties in Baringo county, Loitoktok and Kajiado West Sub-counties in Kajiado county.

Besides the basic salary and other allowances, teachers in these areas are entitled to a hardship allowance of between sh: 6,600 on the lowest grade (B5) to sh: 38,100 highest Grade (D5).

Some of the hardship areas which have been scrapped from the previous list include all sub counties in Nyandarua County, some sub counties in Nandi, Nakuru, Kisumu, Busia and Makueni counties.
