  34. Kigen k Sila

    From;a frustrated unemployed Teacher
    Dear sir/madam/ministry/Commission/HE
    Iam writing this letter as tears Cascade down my cheeks, questions without answers ranking within me asking myself as a teacher,where did we go wrong?Do we have to go through these? regrettably I say I wish I knew.
    At every dawn,I stay with a licker of hope that at least one day I will be assured of a salary at the end of the month.Doing all I can to make ends meet,I have tried in all ventures leave alone selling sukuma, charcoal, doing mjengo without abate,just hoping that one day my life will change.I remember my parents selling every item available at home just to educate me,I remember going to classes hungry just to seek for this education.I remember them going to provide labour in people’s farm just to ensure I complete studying my undergraduate degree,but owe to them because I don’t know when they will start eating the fruits of their labour.I have tried every possible way to seek for my silver lining even through BOM jobs,but disappointments all through.Wicked principals,God is watching you.Seven years down the line, looking on the newspapers, reports on looming mass employment;a flicker of hope year in, year out,my hopes abated:I mean it’s just a report that doesn’t come to fruition.You go to interviews,you encounter with countless of unemployed graduates lining up for one slot,you just give up.I mean TSC KENYA,how do you dupe us that you’re employing a mass when in real sense you’re deploying the already employed to secondary schools?Where will the thousands of unemployed graduate Teachers go to?
    Worse than it all,it’s so inhuman to put the unemployed p1 in a state of limbo.These Teachers and their parents sacrificed every little coin to complete their academic studies.Most of these Teachers are in a state of depression especially after the recent most announcement of their incognito in the coming employment.Change is inevitable but let not the change affect those already in the profession
    I would kindly request the TSC, Ministry of education and the president to consider the desperado affairs of the unemployed teachers and Ensure that any proposed framework in the curriculum is not detrimental to them or does not propel their predicament since they are the suffering lot.
    Thanks for reading on my appeal and i do believe that you’re going to take the necessary actions that will change the lives of Kenyan unemployed Teachers.
    Thanks in advance
    Yours Faithfully

    1. Isoe geofrey

      My God show your kindness to the oppressed and a miracle .To the corrupt those with nepotism let them have no peace because they have made us have no peace in our families

  40. Isoe geofrey

    Let Tsc officer be honest please in this exercise,many of us have not been employed because there is corruption,nepotism and ungenuiness how can a person who graduated recently be employed and live aside people who graduated early.Take not of your secretaries,Resource persons who you leave in office,let the have cursed for all cries of the poor tothem and their generation.

  41. Isoe geofrey

    Only few are called to fill the forms,and many pay a little for them to fill forms ,the merit list is hidden you won’t see it.God look up on us.and if I am lying just investigate.it was to be better Tsc to select applicants nationally then they call for filling forms and if professional documents to lead to disqurrification
