Kenya: Secondary School Heads Reshuffled

The Teachers Service Commission has reshuffled a number of secondary school principals countrywide in a bid to improve performance.

In the unexpected shake up, some deputy principals have been promoted and posted to secondary schools. In Murang'a county, Njiiri High School principal Abraham Githuka has been transferred to Mang'u High School in Kiambu county as the new senior principal, despite strong opposition from Kigumo district leaders. The position was left vacant following the death of Mangu's principal two months ago.

The Star learnt that the heads have received their transfer letters from TSC. David Kamau, formerly of Karima Boys' High school, has been posted to Njiiri to replace Githuka.

The long-serving senior principal Julius Muraya of Githumu High School has been moved to Thika High School taking over from William Mwangi who has been deployed to Lenana School in Nairobi. Deputies elevated to headship are Joseph Waititu of St Peter's Kandara, who has been moved to Weithaga Mixed Secondary School. St Charles Lwanga Secondary School-Kandara deputy will head Ndutumi Secondary School.
