LESSONS FROM THE 2019 TSC-KNUT TUSSLE
Following the recent endless tussle between the Teachers Service Commission, TSC and the teachers’ union, Knut (Kenya National Union of Teachers), both the Teachers Service Commission and the union have a few lessons to bank.

2019 TSC TOUGH LESSONS THE COMMISSION WOULD RATHER FORGET
- HE WHO WANTS A ROSE MUST RESPECT THE THORN
This metaphorical adage perfectly suits the TSC-KNUT situation.
It is crystal clear that the TSC seeks to deflower the rose that KNUT has been tending to all along.
May it never be forgotten that it is through the Kenya National Union of Teachers, KNUT that the Teachers Service Commission was formed.
Therefore, the TSC employees, Dr Nancy Macharia and Dr Lydia Nzomo included are in office courtesy of the Kenya National Union of Teachers.
It is therefore high time the Teachers Service Commission learns to fully accommodate the Rose- teachers and the Thorn- KNUT.
2. LITTLE PEOPLE ARE INDIFFERENT BUT SUPERIOR PEOPLE ARE CARING
For the past few years, the Teachers Service Commission has developed a rather combative and indifferent attitude towards the Kenya National Union of Teachers.
This could be the reason behind Wilson Sossion’ s (KNUT’s chair) “arm twisting” nature.
I want to strongly believe that the Teachers Service Commission is superior enough to mind about the Welfare of KNUT otherwise…
3. THE YOUTH CAN WALK FASTER BUT IT IS ONLY THE ELDERLY WHO KNOW THE ROAD
TSC’s plan to end the recognition agreement with KNUT was a rather uncalculated move.
To date, TSC’s proposal has been halted because you cannot discard a 30-year’s marriage for a one-night stand or clandestine.
Consequently, TSC should reduce the pace since KNUT, “The Elderly” know the path to follow.
4. HE WHO PAYS RESPECT TO THE GREAT PAVES THE WAY FOR HIS GREATNESS
If the Teachers Service Commission greatly craves for respect and attention from KNUT, it should review its star rating for the giant union first.
Therefore, the TSC can only thrive if it lets KNUT thrive too.
#Live and let live…
5. LEARN FROM THOSE WHO HAVE WALKED THE PATH BEFORE YOU…RESPECT THEM
This is a lesson that the TSC should not forget.
KNUT has existed before the Nancy Macharia reign and the TSC had bosses then.
maybe the TSC should seek advice from those who have journeyed with Sossion as KNUT Chair. It might grasp a few tips.

- NEVER BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU
Following the long overdue conflict between the Teachers Service Commission and the teachers’ union, KNUT has been obliged to bear the blunt.
The union has experienced a myriad of challenges ranging from financial incapacitation by the TSC to deregistration threats.
KNUT had maybe forgotten who keeps their digestive system on toes…
2. AUTHORITY AND POWER ARE VERY DIFFERENT: WHEREAS POWER IS THE FORCE BY WHICH YOU CAN OBLIGE OTHERS TO OBEY YOU, AUTHORITY IS THE RIGHT TO COMMAND, BE LISTENED TO OR BE OBEYED BY OTHERS.
Maybe KNUT should embrace and command more authority…that way, the TSC might listen.
3. POWER CORRUPTS, ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY
Once upon a time, the Kenya National Union of Teachers enjoyed absolute power…gone are those times since the TSC has a way out of this mess, KUPPET.
KNUT cannot enjoy absolute power…#Time to change tack.
