School principals of secondary schools in kisii county have been relocated again this month after a short period of time, with the worst-affected region being the Kenyenya sub-county, with two principals relocated to new stations.
One of the first to be affected in the recent transfers is Mr. George Onyando of Randani Secondary School, who swapped positions with Mr. Ezra Okenye of Mokomoni Secondary School in Nyamira County.
Newsnzuri media team is credibly informed that Mr Onyando’s transfer was caused by internal conflicts with his support staff, who claimed to have lost their salaries for six months.
However, it could not establish the authenticity of the allegations as the principal declined to comment on the matter.
The principals of Nyamiobo Secondary School was also affected by the sudden transfers, which will see the relocation to Nyachogochogo High School in Nyamira County.
Speaking about the transfers, the incoming Kenyanyeya Sub-County Secondary Schools Heads Association (KESSHA) Mr. David Osoro said that the transfers interfered with his executive members as he revealed that his processor Mrs. Tabitha Mogonchi had been transferred one year ago to Riambase Secondary School.
He also wondered how the treasurer Mr Onyando was transferred soon afterwards, a move he said had paralyzed the association. “Most of our members have been transferred and this continues to destabilize our union,” he said.
Mr. Osoro called on its members to remain united and continue to build the Association to achieve its noble objectives of strengthening their profession in the development of education.
Confirming the transfers, Mr. George Ouma, Kenyan Deputy County Education Director, said TSC works hand-in-hand with the Ministry of Education to improve children’s education across the country.
He said that like any other civil servant, teachers were bound to work anywhere. Based on the needs arising in the country.
“TSC has a mandate to transfer its employees to any place for the discharge of services, don’t let the public think of the Ministry of Education and TSC as your enemy,” Ouma said.
The official who took the offer from Mr. Anthony Barasa last year expressed satisfaction at the unity of the teachers in the Kenyenya sub-county.
He asked them to continue with the same spirit as he prepared the candidates for the exam during these difficult moments of the outbreak of COVID-19 disease.
