Teachers Service Commission lawyer told Justice Helen Wasilwa that the commission needed 7 days to respond to the case.
Lempaa who graduated with bachelors of Education Arts of Kenyatta University in 1999 has also sued the Salaries and Remuneration Commission over the law pay and the onerous conditions that the teachers are being subjected to in the contracts.
He told Justice Wasilwa that the court should take judical notice that teachers who were recruited in the contract scheme are yet to be paid.
The judge ordered that the case be mentioned on the 10th of March 2020 to allow TSC and the Attorney General to respond to the the case .
In the matter Soyinka Lempaa argues that requiring qualified teachers to be employed at Kshs 15,000 and Kshs 100000 for secondary and primary school teachers respectively is indiscriminative and violative of the dignity of the teacher.
