After the motion to stop delocalization, which he sponsored, was approved, Luramba Mp Titus Khamala claims he would now bring a new motion to remove TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia from her position.
The legislator who proposed the “Review of Teacher Deployment Policy” motion, which received a resounding majority of votes from all Mps, has said that he will now begin a motion to replace the TSC leadership.
“Iam looking at a motion of impeachment , Parliament may be going for the CEO of the Teachers Service Commission,” said Khamala outside Parliament bulidings yesterday.
But he added that he will go with this after engaging with other education stakeholders about how to proceed.
Before introducing the resolution, he stated that he will speak with teachers unions and other organizations to get their opinions.
“Right now am consulting stakeholders, am talking to Kepsha (Kenya Primary School Heads Association), Kessha (Kenya Secondary School Heads Association), am talking to Kuppet and Knut and am also looking at different education stakeholders,” he said.
The Mp also said he will involve Ministry of Education officials on their view and suggestions before taking the TSC leadership head-on.
“Am also in talks with Ministry of Education officials I want to get facts and I want to get sufficient grounds and I will begin working on a motion so that their can be good leadership at top of TSC which respect teachers,” he added.
Yesterday, the motion to end delocalization was approved by the MPs. Additionally, changes were made to the instructions for the teacher recruiting and deployment process.
TSC was ordered to review its teacher recruitment policy so that the employment of teachers t start at zonal level.
“Review the teacher recruitment policy with a view to devolving it to zonal level as the point of recruitment,” read the motion.
The Commission was also ordered to initiate a comprehensive review of the teacher deployment policy with involvement of teacher in order to make the policy consistent with International Labour Organization (ILO) and UNESCO laws and practices on teacher management and deployment.
The House ordered TSC to immediately reverse the ongoing delocalization of teachers.
