Hundreds of teachers in Kenya have been delt a blow after TSC threatened to scrap their areas as hardship allowance areas.
TSC had set out the process of mapping out a new mapping for hardship areas.
A number of counties have been delt a blow with Taita Taveta County getting the major blow since teachers, mainly from Bura and Chawia, which were categorised as hardship zones, have been mapped as the possible areas that might be mapped out.
Some teachers have reported to Safarionline.co.ke that their salaries are set to be slashed by as much as Sh10,000.
Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) Taita-Taveta executive secretary Shedrack Mutungi confirmed that all teachers in the county are no longer receiving the allowances.
KUPPET has criticized the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) for acting against what they had agreed on after they made the announcement.
Two months ago, the World Bank had called for scrapping of hardship allowances for public servants which would see the Kenyan government save upto 3 billion Kenyan shillings.
