- TSC Issues Fresh Demands On Wealth Declaration Even As Deadline Approaches
The teachers’ employer, TSC, issues fresh demands to teachers on wealth declaration ahead of the deadline.
TSC has come out to empathise on some aspects that teachers should put into consideration before their wealth declaration.
According to the commission, teachers are now required to fill in each category as either income, assets or liabilities during the wealth declaration process.
However, the employer has noted with a lot of concern the information teachers have been giving previously terming it unpredictable and which could not coincide with their payslip information.
The teacher service commission CEO Dr Nancy Macharia while addressing the regional and county directors at the TSC headquarters said that teachers do not give genuine details as expected of what they own.
Dr Macharia explained that the exercise requires all the civil servants to declare their wealth without any hideouts.
The CEO reported teachers’ final printouts indicate huge commercial loans but their assets could not be traced whatsoever. In this regard, she continued and said that it is not an offence for a teacher to give information on the assets they possess and the approximate value of the same assets.
Dr Macharia further noted that having a loan without an asset raises a lot of question marks because one can’t have a loan of more than two million, for example, but nothing has been done to generate the profit from the same loan.
According to the TSC CEO, teachers should be aware that each liability should be related to the assets they generated, since one can’t have a liability without an asset that is relatively the same as the liability recorded.
In relation to such envisioned anormally, the CEO humbly requested teachers to provide genuine and realistic information in the ongoing wealth declaration.
