Inmates record drop in KCPE performance

13 January 2015, 12:20 Joseph Njung'eh

Nanyuki - The performance of inmates in the 2014 KCPE exams at Nanyuki GK prison slightly dropped compared to the previous year, an official has said.

Eight inmates sat for the exams with the highest scoring 313 marks and the lowest 100 marks out of possible 500 marks.

According to Bernard Rotich, who is Nanyuki prison Social Welfare Officer, there was class of nine candidates in 2013, with the highest scoring 359 marks and the lowest 110 marks.

The inmate who scored 313 marks has however been released after completing his jail term.

Rotich said last year’s candidates experienced shortage of learning materials including teachers and books.

He pointed out that teachers were volunteer part-timers and classes were mostly held in the evening.

“We normally have two classes; one for the illiterate ones who are learning how to read and write, and another normal class where potential candidates for KCPE are picked and trained,” explained Rotich.

He further added that those interested with pursuing secondary education but are not yet through with their jail terms will be transferred to Nyeri, Naivasha or Kamiti prison facilities.

“Those who fail to pursue secondary school education are enrolled in other training sessions where they are taught carpentry, masonry, dressmaking, polishing and plumbing among other courses,” said the official.
