TSC’s move on recruits unwarranted.

It was all smiles for teachers who emerged winners in the interviews done in August for recruitment into the Teachers Service Commission (TSC). Many of them had been through a heartbreaking wait for absorption to TSC.

However, their joy turned short-lived. Their patient wait for letters of formal employment turned to be a long one. And when the letters finally came, they were asked to report in January,2, 2015! That is four months after interviews.

I feel for that recruit who left his or her contract employment to run to school where he or she was recruited expecting that TSC will post letters soon. Some  were threatened by schools with dire consequences if they didn’t report that early. They recently broke for long holidays with bare hands.

Why does TSC take ages to vet the credentials of its recruits? Aren’t the rigorous interviews conducted at the local level suffice?

I bet TSC’s budgetary allocation from government for new teachers employment is enough to pay new recruits from as early as July. Certainly, there is more than meet the eye.

If her name sails through parliament and finally gets the President’s nod to chair TSC, Dr. Lydia Nzomo has a well cut clean up exercise.
