This article claims that the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) allegedly warned teachers from taking part in the advertised Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission(IEBC) jobs, to apparently prevent them from being absent from school during IEBC interviews and training which will take place on school days.
With only one month to the general election, the IEBC seeks to recruit qualified applicants for temporary positions.
IEBC Chairperson Wafula Chebukati announced that over 300,000 Kenyans are set to be hired on temporary basis ahead of the August 9 elections.
TSC denied reports that it has prohibited teachers from taking up jobs with the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
The Teachers Service Commission, through its official Twitter, handle dismissed and flagged the statement as fake.
The attention of the Commission is drawn to this fake news. Treat it with the contempt it deserves. pic.twitter.com/6S1AXp7kmj

The statement claiming that the Teachers Service Commission banned teachers from taking part in IEBC jobs is FAKE.
