Dr Jamleck Muturi

The giant Teachers Service Commission that is in charge of teachers affairs has been without a substantive Chairman for over four months now.

However, the long wait is now over as the president on Friday appointed Dr Jamleck Muturi as the chairman of the commission following approval by parliament.

In a gazette notice no 4012 dated April 30 president Kenyatta also appointed Timon Oyucho as a member of the commission.

The president said in the gazette notice that he was exercising powers conferred to him by article 250(2) of the Constitution of Kenya and section 8 (10) of teachers Service Commission act 2012.

Dr Muturi emerged top during the interviews by the selection panel which was set up by the president whereby he led with a score of 85% while his closest challenger Samuel Gitonga only managed 68.8%

His name was then forwarded to the president who in turn sent it to parliament for vetting by the members of parliament.

He will be taking over from Dr Lydia Nzomo who retired in December last year having served for a six-year non-renewable term.

The new Chairman has his in-tray full with the teachers' CBA negotiations set to be one of the main agenda this year.

The 2017 CBA is set to lapse in June to pave way for another pay review that will cover 2021-2025.

Now that Dr Muturi will be handling this most sensitive matter of teachers' salary, how will he himself be earning? Below are the benefits entitled to a chairman TSC.
