The delocalization policy did not consider many factors that affected teachers. Teachers who were posted in foreign counties like those in North Eastern complained about poor working conditions and health issues. A good number of teachers were also geographically separated away from their families. They did not get enough time to be with their loved ones and family members. In a nut shell, delocalization policy brought alot of suffering to teachers.
To enable teachers to get enough time for their family members and to be away from harsh climatic conditions, the Teachers Service Commission led by TSC Secretary General Dr. Nancy Macharia and TSC chairman Jamleck Muturi has took an initiative of transferring teachers to their home counties.
According to report shared by Kenyans.co.ke, about 14,000 teachers who serve in different capacities will be posted back to their home counties. During the transfer exercise, TSC will consider three main factors which include; age, gender balance and health conditions of the teachers.
TSC Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia said that the exercise will be completed before the schools reopen on 23rd January 2023. 14,613 teachers will be transferred.
Out of the 14,613 approved transfer cases, 10,934 teachers serving at the primary level will be affected, 1984 school heads and 189 deputy primary school heads will also be posted to their home counties. Besides transferring primary school teachers, the TSC is also targeting to transfer 1,316 secondary school teachers and about 226 secondary school principals. TSC assured teachers that the transfer process will be free and fair. Nancy Macharia added that no form of malpractice will be involved during the process.
