Dr  . Macharia said that it is only Only 8 universities that have so far applied whereby most of which did not meet the necessary requirements to offer TPD courses.

According to  an article seen by this author in standard news,Kenyatta University as well as  University of Nairobi which is are among the top that they offer education did not  apply for the tender up for this.

This  downfall in tsc comes after many questions were raised on the criteria used to pick only four institutions and in which the  top universities that offer education training being left out.

In the first rollout,it is only Kenyatta University, Riara University, Mount Kenya University and the KEMI were picked to train the teachers.
