In what is likely to attract condemnation from education stakeholders, Duale has dared the Teachers Service Commission to issue transfer letters to non-local teachers accusing them of portraying the northern frontier region in a bad light.

Non-local teachers in the former North Eastern Province have been demanding that they are transferred from the region after the Qarsa attack in Wajir that left several teachers dead and others maimed.

On Thursday, teachers working in Mandera county while appearing before the National Assembly education committee narrated harrowing experiences in the hands of students, head teachers, and education administrators sighting insecurity, sexual harassment, gender and religious discrimination and unfair labor practices

Others have been camping outside the Teachers Service Commission offices demanding for the transfer letters.

TSC has issued 960 teachers their transfer letters with education in the region completely grounded with schools especially in Wajir being closed.

The Teachers Service Commission chairperson Lydia Nzomo has since vowed to ensure the security of teachers vowing to transfer non-local teachers in the North Eastern Region until they are assured of their security.

But it’s the sentiments by Majority Leader Adan Duale that are likely to fuel the already charged situation.

Duale says the allegations of harassment by Headteachers and students in the region are farfetched and meant to portray the region in a bad light.

The Majority leader dared TSC to transfer non-local teachers from the region while challenging locals to take up teaching courses to end the perennial problem.
