The Director of public prosecutions Noordin Haji has threatened to charge TSC for failing to put in place policies that protect teachers in volatile areas of the country from insecurity.
DPP Haji who spoke in Garissa during a TSC stakeholders engagement forum urged TSC to fast track solutions that will help in addressing problems of teachers who continue to suffer amid security crisis.
Noordin Haji poked holes in the Nancy Macharia led commission which he said supposed to protect teachers but is yet to address their concerns.
Haji said that the ongoing trend is worrying and unlawful.
He said that according to the Section 7 of the children’s act, he can charge the commission for failing to give sufficient education to the children since most schools in bandit prone areas are understaffed.
He called on to TSC to create a department within the commission that will deal with security difficulties and find solutions to ease access to education.
Haji’s attempt to streamline education in the banditry prone zones comes as learning in the volatile areas is paralyzed as teachers and learners flee schools for their safety.
