TSC approved transfers 2023. Despite the tutors’ protests, the Teachers Service Commission has decided not to transfer foreign teachers employed in North Eastern.
The TSC informed the teachers in letters of regret that it is unable to transfer them due to a shortage of qualified substitutes.
The teachers who received the TSC letter of apology indicated that they were given instructions by their employer to report to their workstations by September 9 or risk being disciplined.
Teachers requesting transfers from Wajir, Garissa, and Mandera counties have been camping at the TSC headquarters in Upper Hill for the past two weeks.
“Your request for transfer out of North Eastern region is acknowledged by TSC. However, due to the lack of a suitable replacement, your request is hereby declined,” TSC said in a regret letter to one of the teachers.
“You are therefore directed to report to your workstation by September 7, 2023, failure to which disciplinary action shall be preferred against you.”
According to one affected instructor, TSC has sent regret letters to approximately 100 teachers.
The teachers persisted on staying inside the commission headquarters to protest the lack of security.

“I was recruited and sent to Wajir county in 2020, and everything was fine until the situation began to deteriorate early this year,” one of the teachers explained.
TSC is already adopting a localization program, with over 27,000 teachers awaiting transfer to their home counties as a result of the repeal of the delocalisation policy.
