The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has interdicted five teachers from Itumbe DOK Primary School in Kisii County who were caught on a viral video coercing their grade two pupils to perform a mocked sex act.
The five teachers; Everlyne Moraa, Angelica Joseph, Catherine Mokaya, Moraa Nyairo and William Isuka have been sent letters by TSC informing them of their immediate suspension.
According to TSC, the teachers breached Clauses 9 (1) and (c) (11) of the Third Schedule of the TSC Act, 2012 as well as subjected the minors to psychological torture and embarrassment by sharing the video clip.
“I am directed by the Teachers Service Commission to say that it is alleged that you breached clause (c) (11) of the Third Schedule of the TSC Act No. 20 Of 2012 …you instructed and/or coerced learners of Itumbe DOK Primary School to engage in on indecent/inappropriate acts depicting homosexuality within the School compound,” said the letters informing them of their suspension.
