The Standard Media Group Apologises to TSC over the 8, 141 TSC Interns

Intern teachers were consumed with joy as they enthusiastically perused the article published by The Standard on Friday March 27, 2020 wondering whether their names will appear in the TSC list.

This move angered the Teachers Service Commission given the sensitivity of the matter. Consequently, the TSC Head of Communications officer Ms. Wababu reached out to The Standard Media by blowing a whistle about the miscommunication.
Consequently, The Standard Group Media has taken a bold step toward the right direction for it has apologized to the TSC for the miscommunication to the general public.
The apology was given in a story entitled “Clarification and apology: TSC recruits.”
“We apologize to the Commission for the error” read part of the story.
