Kitutu Chache South MP Hon Anthony Kibagendi has claimed that Teachers Service Commission (TSC) CEO, Nancy Macharia, and the Education Cabinet Secretary, Ezekiel Machogu’s handlers, are involved in the sale of employment letters.
While taking to his Facebook page the MP made the allegations claiming that both the TSC CEO and handlers of CS Ezekiel Machogu’s handlers are busy hawking employment letters to Kenyans.
“The TSC C.E.O Nancy Macharia and The CS Education Mr Machogu’s handlers are busy hawking TSC employment letters.” Kibagendi posted.
The MP went on to condemn the practice of selling employment letters, stating that it was unfair to qualified teachers who were struggling to find jobs.
Unfortunately, neither Nancy Macharia nor Ezekiel Machogu has responded to the claims made by Hon Kibagendi. However, the allegations have sparked widespread outrage, with many people calling for an immediate investigation into the matter.
The TSC has also come under scrutiny, with many questioning how such illegal activities could take place within the commission without the knowledge of its leadership.
This latest comes at a time when the education sector in Kenya is already facing numerous challenges, including a shortage of teachers and inadequate infrastructure. It remains to be seen how the government will respond to these allegations and whether any action will be taken against those found to be involved in the sale of employment letters.
In the meantime, many are calling for accountability and transparency within the TSC and the Ministry of Education to ensure that the recruitment process is fair and equitable for all qualified teachers.
They have also called on the government to investigate the matter and take action against those found to be involved in the sale of employment letters.
