JSS Intern Teachers Start Receiving Termination Letters

It is purported that termination letters have been sent by their employer to junior secondary school intern instructors who have been demonstrating for permanent employment terms for the past few weeks.

The Teachers Service Commission allegedly informed the interns in a letter dated June 6 that their employment had been terminated “on grounds of professional misconduct,” according to documents obtained by newsflashupdates.com.

“Given the foregoing, the Commission has determined to terminate your internship engagement effective June 6, 2024, on the grounds that you committed professional misconduct by abandoning your duties as an intern teacher with effect from May 13, 2024, to the present,” the termination letter read.

As of the time of going to press, TSC had not reacted to our attempts to contact them by phone or text on the purported letters of termination.

The commission stated that because the interns were demonstrating on May 22, it had sent them show-cause letters.

TSC requested a response from the interns on the topic within 14 days, failing which the planned action would be finally implemented.

TSC stated, “Reference is made to the show cause letter dated May 22, 2024, wherein you were granted the chance to elucidate the reasons why your internship should not be terminated due to professional misconduct.”

“The Commission found me to be unsatisfactory after carefully reviewing your response.”

The material has even been shared with other instructors in the staffroom, according to a permanent teacher working in Nairobi who asked to remain anonymous.

“We have terminated two of our interns who were actively participating in the protests,” he stated.
