KNTPG Dead on Arrival? Blow to Teachers After Transfer Case Quashed

Blow to five teachers who had challenged their transfer to Kwale,Lamu, Kitui and Homabay counties after their transfer case quashed by the court. Court ruled that the Kenya National Teachers Pressure Group (KNTPG) lacked jurisdiction to lodge a case.

According to the report, the commission assured that the transfer were just, reasonable and non discriminative and the allegations aforementioned lacked evidence.

At the time of filing suit, three of five teachers had deserted duties and their proposed association being unregistered as a legal entity disqualified them to initiate a suite.

In an affidavit in the court, the group submitted that they had not written to TSC seeking the transfer to the hardship, insecure far-flung places. Therefore they reported that the move was maliciously done to punish the members agitating for their rights on Teachers Professional Development, that TSC had violated.

Further, in the submissions, they stated that the suffering and inconveniences resulted from transfers to their families were life threatening, inhuman, degrading and irreversible.
