The Kuresoi North Deputy County Commissioner (DCC), Felix Watakila has assured candidates that they will not experience delayed examinations due to poor road infrastructure, saying that measures have been put in place to address any eventuality.
According to Watakila, two buses transporting the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations got stuck within the Sub-county on Tuesday, following yesterday’s evening heavy downpour, however, managed to get the vehicles out of the mud and ensured that the examinations arrived to their destination on time.
He said that with the help of well-wishers and tractors offered to pull out the buses, the rescuing of the vehicles took a shorter time and lauded the locals for their support.
The Administrator noted further that incase the situation persist, there are were standby vehicles to help in the smooth administration of the national examinations.
On Monday, the Nakuru County Commissioner (CC), Erastus Mbui said they will use four wheel vehicles or even boda bodas to ensure all exams reach at the centres if the roads will be impassable.
Additionally, Watakila warned against rogue candidates out to impersonate, steal or cheat during the examination period, warning that they will face the full force of the law.
He advised them to stay away from such vices and focus on making good performance out of their hard work for the eight year period in primary school.
The Kuresoi North Sub-county has 110 Examination Centres where 2,381 boys and 2,329 girls will sit for the KCPE national examinations.
