It is a reprieve for thousands of teachers who were unable to file their 2017-2019 wealth declarations by December 31, 2019. This is after the Teachers Service Commission, TSC, extended the deadline by another one week. Via an internal memo to all County Directors (dated January 7, 2020), the Commission dispatched lists of teachers who had not uploaded their details by the earlier deadline.

The data shows that 9,855 teachers did not file their returns and hence have been given an opportunity to comply.

 “Majority of employees complied within the stipulated time. However, 9,855 teachers and 120 Secretariat Staff are yet to submit their declarations, which is a contravention of the law,” reads the memo; in part.

NEW DEADLINE

Those affected will now have to utilize the chance and file their data between 8th – 14th January, 2020.

The memo requires the County Directors to give a feed back on those who should have not submitted their data by end of the new deadline.

  All teachers in employment of TSC are required to declare their Income, Assets and Liabilities. These include teachers on:

  • Any kind of leave
  • Interdiction
  • Suspension
  • Sick leave

Any teacher in the TSC employment who fails to submit a declaration or gives false or misleading information is liable to a fine of Kshs 1,000,000 or be imprisoned for a term not exceeding one year or both upon conviction.

By December 30, 2019, close to 96,000 teachers were yet to declare their wealth status, online as required by law.
