A section of the lawmakers led by Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei  sked the TSC to ‘immediately’ embark on the process of employing all the over 46,000 intern teachers on permanent and pensionable terms.

“We call upon TSC to immediately stop the termination of contract exercise and recall all the 7, 357 dispatched letters already to JSS teachers,” Cherargei said.

This is after TSC confirmed the sacking of some it sacked 742 JSS teachers and not 7,357 tutors on Tuesday.

TSC said the teachers have been sacked in connection to mass protests that saw thousands take to the streets to demand permanent employment.

TSC on May 22 sent show cause letters to the protesting teachers who had absconded their duties and were required to submit their responses in two weeks.

“10,348 who absented themselves from work from May 13, 2024, were given show-cause letters to explain their whereabouts,” the Commission said.
