Nancy Macharia, the chief executive officer (CEO) of the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), has directed county directors and sub-county education directors to release teachers who were hired by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to serve as election officials.
Macharia gave the county and sub-county education directors instructions to make sure that all teachers show up to work on August 11, 2022, when the schools reopen.
“Grant all teachers who have been contracted by the IEBC as election officials in the forth-coming General elections as per the provisions of the Code of Regulation for teachers,” Macharia stated.
She further directed institutional administrators to ensure that all schools designated by the IEBC as polling centres are made available for the exercise.
On Tuesday basic learning institutions released students following a directive by Education CS Magoha that schools close to pave way for the General Election slated for August 9.
Cs Magoha through a press release on Monday said that schools should release learners for an early mid-term break for a period of ten days and resume on Thursday 11th August 2022.
