The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has conducted a mass transfer of Sub-County Directors (SCD) across the country in an effort to boost service delivery.
In the changes effected towards the end of this week, Catherine Mathenge who was the Naivasha SCD now moves to Kitui West in similar capacity. She will replace Elizabeth Nyambura Njihia who has been posted to Kandara in Murang’a County.
Ms Njihia will be replacing Paul Bii who now goes to Naivasha to take over from Ms. Mathenge.
In Kitui County, Kipkogei Kutol who was the Mwingi East SCD goes to the TSC headquarters with his place being taken over by Nicholas Kitai from Voi Sub-County in Taita Taveta County.
Also in the same County, Lucy Macharia, the Migwani SCD transfers to Kiambaa Sub-County in Kiambu County. Her place will be taken over by Lawrence Kariuki who was the SCD for Tetu in Nyeri County.
On the other hand, Catherine Waithera Nairoshi who has been the Kikuyu SCD in Kiambu County shifts camp to Nyeri County probably Tetu to replace Kariuki.
Erick Ochieng Magack who has been the Seme SCD shifts base to Kuria West in Migori County. He will replace his counterpart, Benard Rotich who has been transferred to Kesses Sub-County in Uasin Gishu County. Rotich will be taking over from Joseph Kiptisia who has been transferred to Marigat Sub-County in Baringo County.
In the neighboring Kapsaret Sub-County, Wilson Ng’olekamar has been transferred to Butere Sub-County in Kakamega perhaps to replace William Masai Kipchomus who now heads to remote Teso North in the bordering Busia County.
Also in the mix is Sammy Rutto who now packs his bags from Rongai Sub- County to go and take charge of Bureti Sub-County in Kericho County. Rutto will be replaced by Peter Kangwana who has been the Embakasi/ Njiru SCD in Nairobi County.
Anne Wamugunda, Dagoretti SCD in Nairobi has been parachuted to Kakamega County to take charge of Mumias East Sub-County. She will be replacing Benard Odoyo Wagunda who now relocates to Pokot North in West Pokot County.
Odoyo on the other hand will be replacing Dennis Nyaanga who now moves to some sub-county in Kitui County.
Betty Soi who has been the Kabete SCD in Kiambu County will now report to a new station in neighbouring Murang’a County. Education News was unable to get the name of her replacement at the time of filing this story. Similarly, Emmy Kiget who has been operating as the Deputy Director at the Nairobi County Regional office has been deployed as the Lang’ata/ Kibera Sub-County Director.
Also affected by the changes is Susyline Kimathi the Westlands Sub-County Director. She will now report to a Sub-County in Machakos County. Her immediate replacement was not yet clear at the time of going to press. It is a similar case for Jane Muturi who was the Makadara/Kamukunji SCD. She has been transferred to Lari Sub-County in neighbouring Kiambu County.
In the same Nairobi County, Jackson Mutai who has been in charge of Kasarani Sub-County takes additional responsibilities and will take over Mathare and Starehe Sub-Counties. There were unconfirmed reports that he will be promoted as either the Deputy Director at the Nairobi regional office or will deputize the Nairobi County Director.
In Nandi County, Henry Nyabuto moves from Tinderet to Soy Sub-County in Uasin Gishu County. He will be replaced by Bremin Rotich from Kimilili Sub-County in Bungoma County.
In Bungoma, long-serving Jane Achieng Nyang’iye will be leaving Mt. Elgon Sub-County where she had made her home to Nyando Sub-County in Kisumu County. She will be replaced by Jotham Ndunde Korofia who has been in charge of Nyakach Sub-County in Kisumu County. On the other hand, Nyang’iye will take over from Nelson Ngare in Nyando.
Ngare now reports to Bumula in Bungoma County. There were reports however that his transfer was receiving opposition from local leaders in the region and could be moved to some friendlier destination.
In Migori, David Muruka will now move as the Awendo SCD to take charge of Ndhiwa in neighboring Homa Bay County. He will be replaced by John Chepkwony who has been the Kisumu East SCD.
