Rita Wahome resigned as Director Staffing in January last year with the same year witnessing a mass resignation of top directors who included Isaac Nganga of Internal Audit, Charles Gichira who was in charge of the commission’s Information and Communication Technology (ICT), and Dr Julius Olayo who was the Director in charge of Human Resource Management and Development.

The commission recently adopted Career Progression Guidelines (CPG) for its Secretariat staff through a circular dated November 28, 2023.

The CPG renamed its Directorate of Field Services to Teacher Discipline Management, which will be headed by a director. It is among the positions the commission now seek to fill.

Evelyn Mitei was holding the position of Director Field Services in an acting capacity when she was appointed to the position in July 2022 after retirement of Mary Rotich. She was moved from the commission’s Integrated Personnel Payroll Data (IPPD), where she was a Deputy Director.
