One candidate in Narok to sit for exams at the hospital

One candidate in Narok South Sub County will sit for her Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams in the hospital after developing labour pains on the eve of the exams.

Narok County Director of Education Apollo Apuko however did not disclose the details of the girl but assured that the girl will be given the necessary attention to do her exams.

Apuko spoke this morning during the opening of the examination container at the Narok County Commissioner’s office premises, an exercise that was witnessed by the County Security team led by Narok Commissioner Isaac Masinde.

The Director said 14, 544 candidates are sitting for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE), 43,465 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) another 39,976 Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA)

There are a total 189 centers for KCSE, 831 KCPE, and 932 centers for KPSEA distributed in the eight sub-counties in the county.

“The center managers, supervisors, invigilators, and security officers have been well briefed on what we expect from them so we do not expect any irregularity, “he said.

Commissioner Masinde called on all those supervising the exams to ensure they do a credible job as per the exam regulations saying those who will compromise the standards of the exam will be dealt with accordingly.

Masinde said there are enough security personnel to escort the exam to the school and back to the exam container to ensure there is no irregularity.

He called on center managers to be transparent, and not to attempt to steal exams, saying a multi-agency team from the Ministry of Education, interior, and ICT was watching to ensure no exam linkage.

“Let us not try to influence our children to steal the exams because they have been preparing for years for these exams. The exam managers should be very keen to ensure no irregularity during the exam period,” he said.

Masinde asked center managers to bar any visitors from entering the school compound and assist any candidate who could develop special needs as the exams continued.

The CC added two schools in the Maasai Mau region, where people who were recently evicted from the forest land, will be allowed to sit for their exams without disturbance.

Elsewhere, 10 inmates at the Narok GK prison are among the candidates sitting for their exams today, according to the prison in charge Benson Lomeri.
