TOTAL SHUT DOWN.

The Commission has been running interviews for various promotional vacancies; over the past few weeks.

This latest directive comes after the President ordered for immediate closure of all learning institutions in order to curb further spread of the disease.

It is not only TSC operations that will be paralyzed. Most organizations have been forced to shut down operations as they wait and see what happens next.

“We have suspended learning in all our education institutions with immediate effect. Consequently, and to facilitate a phased approach, primary and secondary day schools are to suspend operations from tomorrow,” said President Kenyatta on Sunday evening in his address to the Nation.

“For those in boarding schools, the school administration is to ensure that students are home by Wednesday, 18th March 2020 while Universities and Tertiary Institutions are to close by Friday, 20th March 2020,” added the head of state.

The President at the same time urged government offices, businesses and companies to allow employees to work from home, with the exception of employees working in critical or essential services.

The President exuded confidence that the Corona Pandemic will be defeated in due course. “This pandemic will test us, as it is testing all countries in every corner of the world, but I do not believe it will defeat us.  If we pull together, and everybody does their part, we shall overcome its worst impacts,” an optimistic Uhuru said.
