Officials saved KCPE candidates from missing exams

04 December 2012, 17:02 Oduor Omondi

Quick intervention by education officials in Kisumu County enabled KCPE candidates at Orinde Primary School in Nyahera to write their exams after they were allegedly chased out of the examination centre due to unpaid levies.

The pupils who had just left the school compound when the exams were about to start were stopped by curious members of the public who after interrogating them took quick action that saw them get readmitted to sit for the exams.

Sources say that the candidates had been instructed to bring money to cater for the food of invigilators, but a section of them apparently could not raise the money and hence the drastic measures.

However, Kisumu Municipal Education Officer Juma Omwendo explained that the matter has since been addressed.

Omwendo clarified that the candidates had actually been sent home to fetch money for their own lunches and not for the invigilators as alleged.

Meanwhile, KCPE examinations kicked off without any hitches in Nyando, Kisumu, Nyakach, Muhoroni, Kisumu West, Kisumu East and Kisumu North districts where thousands of candidates are expected to write the exams for the next three days.

Kisumu East District Education Officer Jane Mtange and her Nyando counterpart William Minyiri confirmed that the exam papers were delivered on time at the centers and so far there are no reports of any forms of interference or cheating.
