Kenya Kwanza Presidential flagbearer, the deputy president Dr William Ruto, has revealed his manifesto for Kenyans.
During his manifesto launch, at Nairobi, Ruto said his government will pay for the divisive TPS-teacher training program
TSC – The Teachers Service Commission had launched Teacher Professional Development (TPD) mid last year
Teachers are set to attend the training this July as the government promises to pay for the training.
Ruto added that he will stop teachers’ delocalization and being forced to work outside their home counties.
Currently the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has a plan to post and transfer teachers to work in counties away from their homes.
Ruto said delocalization of teachers shall be done at will and also with allocation of hardship allowances for teachers who will take it.
“The teacher must have served in a station for a period of not less than three years and five years for North Eastern and other areas respectively since first appointment; unless otherwise authorized by the Commission’s Secretary,” read the new guidelines from TSC.
Ruto has promised to hire all the unemployed trained teachers within two years. The deputy president said his government shall employ 50% of unemployed teachers during the first year and the remaining 50% in the following year.
He additionally promised to connect all learning institutions, both primary and secondary schools, in the country with free internet.
He shall introduce free school feeding program in all public schools if elected.
Ruto promised to also complete TVET institutions in the remaining 250 wards.
Hi manifesto have fallen under serious criticism for failure to implement previous promises he made during his jubilee administration.
