In Summary

  • A total of 10,000 principals, head teachers and deputies in primary, secondary and tertiary institutions were to be promoted.
  • The positions were previously filled through direct appointments, which created opportunities for abuse by the hiring teams.

The Teachers Service Commission bowed to pressure and suspended indefinitely interviews for 20,057 teachers, which were set to start on Monday.

In a statement, the commission’s head of communication Kamotho Kihumba said the interviews had been on hold due to logistical and technical hitches.

The interviews were for job group K, L, M and N - which were advertised in September last year.

“All the applicants for the positions will be informed of the next course of action as soon as this is sorted out,” Mr Kihumba said.

A total of 10,000 principals, head teachers and deputies in primary, secondary and tertiary institutions were to be promoted.

The interviews were to be conducted in Kisii, Kisumu, Kakamega, Eldoret, Nakuru, Embu, Machakos, Nyeri, Nairobi and Mombasa.
