He claimed that after exhausting all possible sources of funding through borrowing during the first semester, he was unable to obtain any additional funds.
His headteacher had scheduled a staff meeting to discuss plans for term two. The only person missing was the JSS instructor. The majority of his coworkers in the section for elementary schools had arrived on Monday.
In order to support the struggling teacher, the headteacher—who is also the acting JSS Principal—asked other teachers for assistance.
Together with their headteacher, the teachers raised Sh 2,600 and gave it to the teacher.
The instructor is one of the 17,800 JSS instructors who didn’t receive their April paychecks. Since they reported for work in February, some of the teachers have not received pay.
To alleviate the teaching deficit and guarantee a smooth transition for the new cohort of the Competency Based Curriculum, TSC recruited 35,550 new recruits earlier this year, including these 17,800 teachers.
The TSC stated on Monday that it was trying to make sure the last group of instructors received their payments in May.
“We apologise for any delays that may have resulted by teachers reporting to their stations after hours or from the late submission of necessary paperwork” Tsc stated.
Every effort is being made to implement all salaries in May, the commission said in a statement.
TSC said that the late arrival of instructors at their workstations, which interfered with the processing of salaries, was the cause of the delayed payments
