Primary Teachers’ recruitment which kicked off on Tuesday was marred with violence in parts of Kuria as non locals were chased away.
The afternoon drama ensued after local politicians from the community stormed the venue and demanded for the recruitment register which they tore into pieces for including non locals.
Several applicants were turned away for being ethically unfit for the advertised jobs.
The teachers who spoke to the media said they were frog matched from the que and sent parking outside the recruitment venue .
Yusuf Keriango, who was among the applicants said he was denied an opportunity because he is married to a non local.
He said the Teachers’ Service Commission was unfair in shortlisting them in far flung areas without taking into consideration the hostility of some communities.
Dorice Miruka, who graduated in 2011, says the level of hostility meted on non-locals was unwarranted .
Some of the teachers from the Kuria community said they are marginalized and thus could not share the limited vacancies with their counterparts from other regions.
The county Teachers Service Commission (TSC) director Mrs Beatrice Lukalu, said she was yet to receive an official complaint from the aggrieved individuals.
