Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has moved over 2,600 classroom in its new reshuffle.

These include both primary and secondary school heads.

Most of the affected heads, according to Daily Nation, are said to have stayed long in their former schools.

Others who have been transferred had barely two years in their previous stations after having been moved from their home counties, and before the reshuffle.

The move has also seen various deputy heads promoted to principals and headmasters.

Earlier this month, the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) vowed to oppose any attempts by TSC to transfer headteachers working in their home schools.

Transfer letters for the primary heads are already in circulation since Monday.

Kuppet said that they fully supported the move, but it would be advisable for several factors to be considered.
