Non-Locals Chased Away Violently in Narok after Attending TSC Internship Interviews

teachers chased away

This week was a busy week for TSC as they recruit teachers on internship. However, the exercise was full of drama and challenges. Teachers are filling venues in hundreds and thousands of numbers, only so as to secure 1 or 2 positions.

As the scramble for limited TSC positions continue, teachers in Narok have turned against their colleagues from other countries and chased them away. Local teachers and residents said that they want their own people to be employed in their own counties.

TSC requires teachers to apply for vacant positions based on their subject combinations, not locations. Yet tribal cohorts have been formed on many occasions to drive away applicants from other counties. The situation was experienced in Kuria and Busia in the recent TSC recruitment of October 2020, and now Narok has gone the same direction.

Hundreds of non-local teachers who had attended TSC internship interviews at Maasai Girls High School were alleged chased away. The situation was chaotic as some teachers ran on foot while others were bundled away by boda boda riders.

Teachers have now taken to the social media to demonstrate their frustrations. Some say they were not only humiliated, but also physically injured due to the chaos that ensued.

In fact, unemployed teachers now claim that the teaching profession has been soiled by tribalism, nepotism, and corruption.
