Makueni County Commissioner Beverly Opwora has warned parents and teachers who might be planning to engage in any examination malpractice that they will be dealt with severely.
Opwora was speaking in Wote after witnessing the Deputy County Commissioner and Sub County Director of Education opening the exams’ container and issuing national examinations materials to 117 examination centres.
“I take this opportunity to send a very firm warning to anybody who may try to engage in malpractice as the exercise is going on that we shall take very strict measures according to the law,” warned Opwora.
She noted that the container was opened at 6 am and each of the 117-examination centre in the sub county will have two-armed security officers.
She reiterated her commitment to ensure that all eligible candidates sit for their exams assuring them that the government has an opportunity for each one of them irrespective of the grades they will attain.
“In Makueni County we have ensured that all candidates will sit for the exams, and any emerging issues shall be addressed immediately. Any unwell candidates will do exams at the hospital,” noted Opwora.
Opwora added that they will be closely monitoring the exercise as a multiagency team urging the stakeholders to provide a conducive environment for the candidates during this period.
The administrator added that they have mapped out all the areas that are prone to be affected by the ongoing rainfall and they have deployed powerful vehicles to beat the tough terrains and challenging weather conditions.
Also present during the exercise were Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) official Elizabeth Obade, Makueni DCC Joel Mwangala together with the County and Sub County Directors of Education.
