The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has deregistered 73 teachers, effectively stopping them from acting as tutors in any capacity.
In a statement released by the TSC boss, Nancy Macharia, the teachers cannot engage in teaching in any learning institution in the country in accordance with the TSC Act (2012).
The Commission posted the various case numbers alongside the names of the tutors, indicating that the tutors faced various indiscipline charges.
“Pursuant to section 30 of the TSC Act (2012), the Commission wishes to publish names of teachers who have been removed from the Register of Teachers. Further, under the law these teachers cannot engage in teaching in any learning institution,” read part of the statement.
According to the Act, any person who employs an unregistered teacher is liable to a fine of not less than Ksh100,000 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or both.
