Prolonged labour at a hospital in Kikuyu sub-county resulted into a college student in Kiambu County to miss her business Examination last Friday
David Kebati the principal of a private college in Kiambu Town told KNA today that the student was still experiencing pains by the time she was scheduled to have been writing her exam paper which was scheduled to begin at 11:00 a.m. on the material day.
“We had undertaken to deliver the Examination paper by providing an invigilator and security to the hospital in Kikuyu County but her husband informed us that she was in too much pain to do the examination and that she could not be talked to.”
Mr. Kebati made these remarks today at the County Commissioner’s office when he came to collect more examination papers from the container where the examinations papers are stored for security.
He revealed that as time progressed, the husband gave up and that was when the duo stopped pressing on the college administration to deliver the business examination which was being done by the student in tertiary institutions.
The student had gone into labour on Thursday night and by Friday, she had not yet delivered. She will have to rebook for the paper she missed so she can do it next year.
The student was learning in Kiambu but was commuting from Kikuyu where she is still in the hospital.Mr.Kebati added that they had not received information on the condition of the said student by the time of collecting today’s examination papers.
Form 4 have already begun writing selective examinations where today, the examination administrators collected Physics and History both paper one.
Kiambu sub-county director of Education Mrs.Roselyne Litaba lauded the efforts taken by the college administration saying they had tried their best to assist the student.
