Kenya: TSC Warns of Impostors in Hiring Staff

The Teachers Service Commission has warned applicants seeking for teachers' jobs to be wary of fraudsters posing as its staffs.

Siaya TSC director Daniel Cherutoi said imposters might seize the opportunity to con the applicants.

He was briefing the media in his Siaya office yesterday.

Cherutoi said the recruitment will be free and fair. He said recruiting officers, who include principals and Boards of Management, will take personal responsibility for any malpractices in the hiring of teachers.

"Selection will be based on TSC employment guidelines," Cherutoi said.

The director said there is a teacher shortage of 1,152 for primary and 1,498 for secondary schools in Siaya.

He said the county has however been allocated 221 slots for primary and 69 for secondary schools, which is insufficient.

"Five percent of the positions will be reserved for people with disabilities," Cherutoi said.
