President Uhuru Kenyatta has nominated five people for appointment as members of the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).
The five; Dr. Nicodemus Ojuma Anyang, Christine K. Kahindi, Sharon Jelagat Kisire, Annceta G. Wafukho, and Salesa Adano Abudo, were nominated upon the President’s receipt of the report of the Selection Panel.
President Kenyatta has now forwarded the names to the National Assembly for approval in accordance with the Teachers Service Commission Act No.20 of 2012.
The National Assembly is now, according to the Act, expected to consider each of the nominations and approve or reject them within 21 days.
“Honourable Members, conscious of the central role of the Commission in the education sector and noting the unprecedented nature of the early learning and basic education calendar for the years 2020, 2021 and 2022, H.E The President has requested the National Assembly to consider the nominees on a priority basis,”wrote Speaker Justin Muturi in a message to the House.
“To this end Honourable Members, noting that the House will proceed on its normal long recess from 20th August, 2021 in accordance with its published Calendar, the Committee should expeditiously notify the nominees and the general public of the time and place for holding the approval hearings and thereafter, upon conclusion of the hearings and adoption of its Report, submit the same to enable the House to consider the matter within the statutory timelines.”
