79 KCPE candidates may miss results

06 December 2012, 16:35 Alloys Musyoka

Malindi - Tension is mounting among candidates at a private primary school in Malindi after Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) warned that 79 candidates may miss out their results for sitting their final exams in a fake examination center.

KNEC director Paul Wasanga said the school which had brought candidates from different private schools in the region was in a deplorable condition with neither toilets neither class rooms.

He said even the schools which the candidates were drawn from had not been registered and were not recognized by ministry of education as well as KNEC, a fact he said can lead to automatic cancellation of their results by the exam body.

"This place is not good for candidates to sit for their final exams; it seems like a drinking den," he said.

Wasanga said the school also had more candidates sitting for their finals exams despite the fact that the management had only forwarded names of 19 candidates.

He lamented that the school was also bearing different names which were not recognized by neither the examination body nor ministry of education.
"How can one school have two names because this is known as Star and at the same time Seedling? These are some of the rules and regulations that we want examination centers to clarify to us before registering candidates," he noted.

He assured school owners that KNEC will not register any examination center without doing inspection to avoid forcing candidates to sit for their exams in bad environment which he noted may affect their performance in the final exams.

"We want to cut off this trend of some cartels extorting money from parents in the name of private schools just to force candidates to do their exams in such environments. We will deal with them consequently," he added.
