Teachers Service Commission has indicated that it’s going to bar all employed teachers from taking part in recently advertised jobs by IEBC in preparation for next year’s general elections. The move is meant to prevent the teachers from being absent from school during iebc trainings which will take place during school term date calendar and therefore affecting learning process.
This comes a time when unemployment in Kenya continue to claw and bite. Since then teachers have expressed frustration towards their employer. The jobless Kenyan also wants teachers to ease up the competition by stepping aside during the application process, a factor that would allow many of them to realize success.
However, this hasn’t been warmly accepted by all teachers- with some endorsing the move while others disregarding it on the idea that the qualified applicant should get the jobs and never the other way round.
According to reports by the Kenyan National Bureau of Statistics, the unemployment rate has kept increasing.
The electoral agency on Saturday, August 21, announced 9,570 temporary vacancies in different positions as it embarks on a countrywide voter registration exercise.
The posts up for grabs include the Voter Registration Assistants that will seek to recruit 1,450 people and another 580 in the position of the Constituency ICT Clerks. IEBC is also seeking to recruit 7,540 Voter Registration Clerks from across the country.
According to the commission, successful applicants will be required to work for long hours under the working terms set by the agency.
The commission led by Chairman Wafula Chebukati, reiterated that all applications for the positions should be submitted online on or before the August 27, 2021 deadline.
