Why TSC Has Deregistered 64 Teachers.
More than 60 teachers have been deregistered for various disciplinary reasons, and some have forged academic credentials during recruitment.
According to data from the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), 38 tutors have been removed from the teachers’ rolls just this month.
According to the commission’s chief executive officer, Nancy Macharia, the teachers were removed from the rolls and deregistered after a disciplinary process.
Another 26 teachers were fired or removed from the payroll for presenting forged certificates during the recently concluded recruitment process.
This means that those who were found not guilty of disciplinary violations may have engaged in canal knowledge with their students.
According to TSC data, Siaya and Murang’a counties had the highest number of teachers accused of defilement in the previous three years.
There were 16 cases in each of the two counties. Nakuru came in third place with 15 cases of defilement, followed by Kakamega with 13, Busia and Kitui each with 12, and Homa Bay with 11 cases.
According to TSC, Vihiga, Narok, Meru, and Bungoma counties each had ten defilement cases.
Other counties with a high number of defilement cases include Machakos with nine, Kirinyaga and Makueni with eight each, and Kiambu, Kisii, Migori, and Kisumu with seven each. Nyandarua, Tharaka Nithi, and Kilifi were next with six cases each, while Embu had five.
According to TSC data, the most sexual harassment cases were reported in 2019, with 124 teachers being fired and deregistered.
In 2020, 101 teachers were removed from the rolls, compared to 57 cases the previous year.
Since 2015, the TSC has deregistered 485 teachers for engaging in unethical behaviour, including having sex with minors.
Dr Macharia cited Section 30 (1) (e) of the TSC Act in the gazette notice.
“The Commission wishes to notify the public that the persons whose names are specified in the schedule herein have been removed from the Register of teachers pursuant to the provisions of section 30 (2) of the TSC Act,” said Dr Macharia.
Dr Macharia also cited Sections 30 (4) and (5) of the TSC Act, as well as Section 23 (2).

The sections state that if a teacher’s name is removed from the register under the TSC Act, it may not be reinstated unless directed by the Commission.
It also states that a teacher whose name has been removed from the register ceases to be a teacher for the purposes of the Act as of the date of removal.
According to the TSC report, on March 11, 2022, both cases of teachers who forged certificates and those who failed various disciplinary cases were decided.
This also means that neither of the teachers will provide instruction unless they are registered as teachers under the TS Act.
“Any person who suffers or permits or employs in any school a person not being a registered teacher shall be guilty of an offence and eligible to a fine not less than Sh100,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or both.
Dr. Macharia also referred to Regulations 18 (1) © and (d) of the TSC code of regulations, as well as Section 45 of the TSC Act.
Macharia previously chastised school leaders for covering up the vices committed by their staff.
