The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has come out to denounce the circular doing rounds on social media purporting that a section of teachers risk missing their salaries for failing to declare their 2017/2019 assets, liabilities and income. According to the Commission, the circular and lists are fake and should be ignored.
“Please ignore posts circulating on social media purporting that TSC will stop salary for employees who did not comply with the requirements of Declaration of Income Assets and Liabilities,” says the Commission.
A circular supposed to have originated from the Commission held that over 3,500 teachers and TSC staff will be removed from the payroll for failing to declare their wealth after expiry of the deadline.
The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers, Kuppet, had on Tuesday written to the teachers’ employers to protest the move, terming it unfortunate. But, TSC says affected teachers will be contacted once normalcy ensues. This is because all learning institutions are currently closed as a result of the current Covid-19 pandemic.
“The Commission will communicate to the affected employees individually when normalcy resumes,” TSC adds.
A list of over 45,000 teachers who purportedly will be missing out of the TSC payroll has been making rounds on various Social media platforms. This is believed to be an earlier list released by the Commission in December, 2019.
