Dr Nancy Macharia. Because of Nancy Macharia’s advanced age, an activist has filed a lawsuit asking for the appointment of a new chief executive officer for the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).
Francis Owino, an activist, has asked High Court Judge Lawrence Mugambi to rule that Dr. Macharia’s continued leadership of the organization is illegal because she supposedly has reached retirement age.
He believed that Macharia’s mandate should have expired in February of this year.

Macharia succeeded Gabriel Lengoibon, who resigned in June 2015 after emerging as the best.
After Mr. Jesse Muhoro (1967–1974), Mr. James Kamunge (1974–1977), Mr. Duncan Mwangi (1978–80), Mr. Joseph Lijembe (1980–82), Mr. Jackson Kang’ali (1982–1998), Benjamin Sogomo (1998–2003), Mr. James Ongwae (2003–2004), and her predecessor Mr. Gabriel K Lengoiboni, Ms. Macharia is the ninth Commission Secretary/CEO.
Since the commission’s founding, she was its first female TSC CEO.
The commission continued the same in 2020 after the initial term.
In this instance, Owino has also included the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission and the employer of the teachers.
Owino asserts that members of the education committee are silent regarding her term.
Despite the fact that he hasn’t filed a lawsuit against Parliament.

He claims that Macharia was born in 1963 and is now eligible for retirement.
Owino alleges that on February 16 of this year;
Cabinet Secretary Aisha Jumwa of the Ministry of Public Service, Gender, and Affirmative Affairs,
refused all requests for term extensions for all public civil workers who had reached the age of 60.
He also wants a court order preventing Macharia from continuing to run the commission.
The current age for TSC CEO is 61 years.
