Labour Court reinstates 3,800 TVET tutors to TSC

The Employment and Labour relations court has reinstated to the Teachers Service Commission 3,800 TVET tutors who had been transferred to the Public Service Commission.

Justice Nelson Abuodha directed that the tutors be put back under the Teachers Service Commission as it is the only authority mandated to handle teacher’s matters.

In the case KUPPET had challenged the transfer of the tutors arguing there was no public participation.

Elsewhere, Anti-Corruption Magistrate Lawrence Mugambi say three NSSF Senior Managers and three Discount Securities Ltd officials have a case to answer over the loss of 1.2 billion shillings of pension funds at the NSSF.

Former Managing Trustee James Akoya, former Investment Manager NSSF Francis Zuriels Moturi and Internal Audit Manager Mary Ndirangu should explain how the money was paid for by NSSF but not purchased by Discount Securities LTD.

And a clinical officer has been arraigned in a Makueni court and charged with defiling a class 8 girl who had visited his clinic to undergo medical examination.

According to the prosecution the accused Samuel Kimotho Mutisya who was in charge of a government dispensary at Kathonzweni went against the set code of professional conduct and discipline.

Mutisya pleaded not guilty before Senior Principal Magistrate James Mwaniki and was released on a 300,000 shillings bond with a surety of a similar amount. The case will be mentioned on March 14th.

Finally, the Mombasa based Muslims for Human Rights (Muhuri) organization is demanding to be paid damages by government for linking it to the terrorist group, al Shabaab in 2015.

Through its counsel Willis Otieno the organization says it incurred cost in legal representation and meetings to clear its name.

On April 7, 2015, Muhuri was among 85 organizations blacklisted over alleged terror funding links, following the Garissa University College terror attack that left 148 students dead.
