Technology will be used to help rid schools of teachers who are having sex with learners.

This comes as data released by the Teachers Service Commission showed that Nyanza and Western top the list of provinces with the highest number of sex pests.

Though the number of cases appears to be small at 164 this year, it is an increase of 43 over the previous year.

The 164 cases reported in 2010/2011 were an increase from 121 cases reported in 2009/2010.

A new IT-based system launched yesterday will help TSC to identify and punish the classroom sex offenders.

Speaking in Nairobi during the launch of the Customer Relations Management System, TSC secretary Gabriel Lengoiboni said it will ensure that wayward teachers who are fired do not find their way back to classrooms by getting jobs in private schools.

It will also speed up investigations and conclusion of reported cases.

The system contains details of all teachers employed by TSC, including their names, employment numbers and work stations.http://www.nation.co.ke/News/TSC+wields+big+stick+to+punish+randy+teachers/-/1056/1254394/-/tjrhbsz/-/index.html
