The Teachers Service commission (TSC) has transferred more than 2,500 primary and secondary school heads in a new reshuffle expected to create a new fight with teachers unions.
A majority of those affected are principals who have stayed in one station for long while others have hardly been to their stations for a year.
The mass transfers have also seen several deputies promoted and moved too.
The transfers have affected 1,010 secondary school principals and 1,621 heads of primary schools across the country.
Many primary school heads affected by the transfers started receiving their letters on Monday, with a directive that they should report to their new stations next week.
In Meru County, 35 secondary principals have been moved while in Kisumu, 12 principals have been moved to schools in Homa bay, Siaya, Bungoma, Busia, Migori and Kakamega.
In Vihiga County, 15 heads have been moved as another 29 in Murang’a County have been moved to schools in Kiambu, Machakos, Nairobi, Nyandarua, Kitui, Tharaka-Nithi, Nyeri, Nairobi and Laikipia.
Other counties where school heads have been reshuffled include Kirinyaga (26), Embu (35), Trans Nzoia, Bungoma (37), Kitui (35), Machakos (31), Busia (10), Nakuru (24), and Migori (23).
