Teachers across the country should be a happy lot as Members of Parliament have finally come to their rescue. The Members of Parliament have passed a motion that have allocated teachers’ pay rise of 11billion shillings. These money will go for a salary increment and recruitment of 5000 teachers on permanent and pensionable basis. Another portion will go towards the recruitment of 10000 teachers on internship early next year.

The move was taken by the Parliament after the Teacher Service Commission (TSC) requested for more funds to recruit teachers next year. Because of 100% transition, more teachers are needed and therefore Dr. Nancy  Macharia says that there is need to employ more teachers to cater for the same.

With this funds allocation, Macharia says that the commission will be able to employ more teachers on internship and permanent basis. Those already employed by the commission will also get a share of salary increment. These are good news to both primary and secondary school teachers.
