Teachers employed by teachers Service commission were expecting delayed July salaries as is the norm.
Being the beginning of the new financial year, the commission normally takes time to make some changes like annual Increments.
Earlier reports had indicated that it would take a little bit longer for Kenya's tutors to get their July pay at least up to early August.
Nevertheless, Monday evening seems to be a good day for teachers when a number of them took to social media to report having received their July pay.
Possible reason for early pay is that TSC didn't have many changes to make on the payrolls given that there wasn't Payrise like last year where TSC had to effect the last phase of CBA 2017.
Today being the first day in school, the salary couldn't have come at a better time. With a number of bills to settle ranging from school fees to rent and transport to school, teachers couldn't hide their joy.
Some so called smoke detectors took time to collate data and announce the paypoints that have paid teachers. Below are the screenshots of Reactions online.
Teachers were expecting a salary rise this month but SRC froze payrise for two years dumpening their hopes.
