Chavakali to register 639 candidates

11 March 2015, 11:33 Dareel Eric

Vihiga - Over 313 candidates who did not get their exam results at Chavakali High School have been asked to report to the school starting Monday next week to resume learning.

The decision was reached by the school’s stakeholders in a daylong meeting that was held Tuesday, where parents unanimously agreed to cater for the boarding and exam registration expenses.

The decision means that the school will now have 639 candidates sitting for their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examinations at the school, a record number that will cause much strain on the school’s limited facilities.

In a meeting held at the school, principal Indimuli Kahi said that he was happy about the parents' resolution to take their children back to school.

“Sometimes, it is better to swallow our pride. But like a mother who has had a stillbirth, we will still go into the labour ward again and deliver,” he said.

On Monday, the school’s Management Board met where a decision was reached to register afresh all willing students who were affected in last year’s examinations so they can re-sit their exams at the school this year.

The parents said they should know the fate of the results that will be released in 2016 earlier so that they can prepare for it.

Some of the parents who spoke at the meetings were willing to pay for more than one student and help those from poor backgrounds to re-sit their exams.

The school board ruled out going to court to challenge the decision by KNEC to cancel their results noting that court cases often delay and may not be ruled in their favour.

“We have had cases where Members of Parliament who were rigged in are ruled as having secured their seats illegally after they have served for almost five years. So we won’t rely on the court,” said Indimuli.
