A smile to teachers. The teachers service commission is a body in the country that is given constitutional mandate to monitor the operations of all educators in the country.
Due to a pending court case, teachers are expected to reap big this month. The teachers service commission (TSC) has confirmed that teachers’ salary for this month, July, will come with a 7% increase. In addition, salaries for teachers are not going to be subject to the 1.5% deductions towards the housing fund.
Busia senator Okiya Omtatah’s petitioner was retained by the high court judge Mugure Thande. As a result, Thande refused to set aside orders suspending the 2023 Finance act on 12th July this year.
Earlier, the deductions were set to take effect as from the first day of this month of July. This was according to the finance act 2023.
However, the deductions are not going to affect salaries for government employees this month.
Thande rules that the petitions that were presented by various people including the Busia senator Okiya Omtatah and others have given proof that they have a case. In addition, it has been revealed that the public stands will suffer incase the orders are lifted.
Further, the judge ordered that the file be forwarded to chief justice Martha Koome so that she can appoint a bench of judges who are going to hear and to determine the matter.
Earlier, president William Ruto announced salary increment of seven percent to ten percent for all teachers as well as other civil servants. He said that the government did this because they wanted to protect all civil servants from the harsh economy of the country.
In addition to the enhanced net pay benefits, the educators’ borrowing power will improve whenever they want to take loans.
