Another Teacher Has Sued TSC. Check The Reason.
A teacher who teaches in a school in Kakamega County has sued Teacher Service Commission for serving her with a show-cause letter.
Ms Carolyne says that she received a show-cause letter after filing a complaint with the police against her colleague who assaulted and injured her son.
Her son is a candidate at Mukumu Boys who are aged 13-years. Ms Carolyne claims that the boy was beaten senselessly by a teacher and he sustained injuries in his genitals, legs and abdomen.
After the incident, she filed a report at Khayega police station accusing her colleague of violating children’s rights.
Three days later, after registering her complaint of child assault, she was shocked by the show cause letter from TSC. She didn’t expect that.
According to Ms Carolyne instead of the teacher service commission dealing with the teacher who assaulted her son they are serving her with disciplinary proceedings.
The letter that she received is dated 22/10. The letter was signed by Caren Ondhoro who is the sub-county director for Kakamega East.
According to her, the teacher service commission is accusing her of insubordination.
Ms Carolyne stated that the letter she was served with is meant to blackmail her so as not to pursue the case of assault against her colleague. She further added that the letter is misconceived and not directed accordingly.
In her affidavit, Ms Carolyne said that the teacher service commission has gone beyond limits by involving itself with parental and school contracts that are meant to be mutually exclusive in educational services.
She further wants the court to void the show-cause letter and prohibit TSC from asking response from her to the contents of the letter. The court should also prevent TSC from taking any further steps in relation to the letter.
TSC is expected to respond to all the issues raised by Ms Carolyne on the twenty-ninth of this month when the matter shall be mentioned in court.
