ODM MP Exposes Alleged Ethnic Bias in TSC Teacher Recruitment

Peter Kaluma, a member of parliament for Homabay Town, raised the alarm on Saturday regarding the Teachers Service Commission’s (TSC) allegedly biased recruitment of tutors.

The lawmaker asserted that teachers from Mount Kenya obtain employment almost immediately after graduation and questioned why the situation differs in other regions.

Additionally, he claimed that TSC treats teachers from Luo Nyanza and Ukambani unfairly during recruitment cycles.

Kaluma continued by stating that it was improper to hire and deploy teachers from regions deemed favorable and dispatch them to assignments where teachers remain unemployed.

In addition, he asserted that politicians have seized control of TSC recruitment.

He emphasized that, in the future, teachers should be hired based on a “first-to-graduate, first-to-be-employed” basis.

Additionally, he emphasized the removal of the “delocalization” policy, allowing teachers to work in their local communities.

Additionally, he emphasized the importance of abolishing the “delocalization” policy, allowing teachers to work in their home regions.

Additionally, he suggested conducting an audit of all 60,000 instructors that the current administration has hired.

According to TSC data presented in March to the National Assembly Committee on National Cohesion and Equal Cohesion, the maximum number of registered teachers are Kalenjin and Kikuyu.

Kalenjins (59,538), Kikuyus (59,010), Luhyas (52,882), Luos (40,657), and Kambas (39,807) comprised the largest proportion of teachers employed by TSC at the time, according to the report.

The CEO of the TSC, Nancy Macharia, explained that the unequal distribution was the result of incessant prodding by members of Congress.

Macharia expressed frustration, stating that the committee rejected the commission’s proposal to employ and deploy teachers based on regional needs.

Instead, the committee insisted on the equal distribution of teachers among all counties, leaving the commission with limited options.
