 Teachers To Miss Salaries Over Wealth Declaration, TSC Shared  List

The Teacher Service Commission, TSC, has sent thousands of show-cause letters to teachers who failed to declare their wealth last year.

TSC shared a list of teachers who failed to declare their funding with deputy county directors (SCDs), saying teachers must respond or miss pay as early as next week.

“Unless a satisfactory reason is given by Monday next week, teachers will miss their pay,” one of the deputy county directors warned teachers yesterday.

All public officers are required to declare their wealth; periodically according to Kenyan law. This declaration is made online and there are hefty penalties for officers who fail to declare their income, assets, and liabilities within the stipulated time

In a circular number 12/2021 dated 4 October 2021 addressed to all TSC heads and teachers and copies sent to regional and county directors, the commission ordered teachers to declare their assets by 31 December 2021.

The Commission said that any announcement made after midnight of December 31, 2021, will not be considered.

The Public Ethics Act of 2003, is mandatory for all public officers to declare their income, assets, and liabilities once every two years.

All teachers in the employment of TSC are required to declare their Income, Assets, and Liabilities. These include teachers on: Any kind of leave, Interdiction, Suspension, or Sick leave.

“Any teacher employed by the Commission who fails to furnish a declaration or gives false or misleading information shall be liable to a fine of Kshs 1,000,000 or shall be imprisoned for a term not exceeding one year or shall be convicted of both,” said Nancy Macharia.

For the teachers and staff to be reinstated into the TSC payroll they will be required to write a letter through their immediate Supervisor/Headteacher/Principal to explain why they did not adhere to the instructions to declare their wealth as stipulated in the law.

School heads must also give evidence that the teacher is indeed in active service. Those affected will be hoping that the Commission will not take further action
