20 candidates locked out of KCPE exam as school failed to register them

10 November 2015, 12:08 Ben Wafula

Bungoma -Twenty students of Hope Academy in Sirisia constituency were shocked to find out that their school had not registered them for this year's KCPE examination.

The candidates received the shocking news when they turned up for rehearsals on Monday at their school.

The students who are pointing an accusing finger to the school director, Robinson Nyongesa, for their woes said they had studied in the school for eight years and were hoping to sit for the examination this year so they could move on to secondary school.

They said that their efforts, through their parents, to find out their registration status bore no fruit as the director used to dismiss them.

“The director used to dismiss us and became harsh whenever we asked for the progress of our registration for the exams,” said one candidate.

County Director of Education, Charles Anyika, confirmed that the school had not been registered for examinations.

Anyika further claimed that the school had not completed the registration process for the school and as such was not allowed to conduct examinations.

“The school has not been registered by the Ministry of Education and as such cannot be an examination centre. We are asking parents to check registration status of private schools before enrolling their children,” said Anyika.
