Kaimenyi: KNEC, KUPPET row will not delay exam results

26 November 2013, 11:31 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - The standoff between Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) and Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) over marking of exams will not delay release of exam results, Education Cabinet Secretary, Jacob Kaimenyi, said Monday.

Kaimenyi said there are enough teachers to mark the examinations and thus results would be released on time.

He said KNEC had already taken measures to ensure teachers get better pay for marking the papers.

The Cabinet Secretary was responding to KUPPET following the union’s threat to boycott the exam marking exercise if KNEC does not increase the payment per script.

Kaimenyi was speaking to journalists at Karatina University during the institution’s first graduation ceremony after it was granted charter last year.

He urged universities to create education programs that align with social-economic needs of the community.

He further said universities should endeavour to carry out research, find out solutions to local problems to benefit the communities around them.

Nyeri Governor, Nderitu Gachagua, and Mathira MP, Peter Weru, attended the event.
