Helicopters Deliver KCPE Papers On Somali Boarders As Security Heightens In Kerio Valley

Helicopters To Deliver KCPE Papers On Somali Boarders As Security Heightens In Kerio Valley.
Helicopters have been dispatched by the government to deliver KCPE papers along the country’s border centers in Garissa, Wajir, and Mandera counties.
North Eastern Regional Commissioner James Kianda, speaking from Garissa, said the choppers are being used to deliver papers to remote locations along the Kenya-Somalia and Kenya-Ethiopia borders.
 “Knec, in liaison with Interior and Education ministries, have deployed helicopters  to deliver exams to far-flung areas and that includes the borders,” Kianda said.
Kianda told journalists after opening the examination container at the Garissa County Commissioner’s compound that centres served by helicopters included Hulugho, Galmagala, Liboi, Kulan, Habassweini, Arabiya, and Takaba.
The use of helicopters was influenced by the Al Shabaab terror group based in Somalia. Frequent attacks have resulted in deaths, injuries, and property damage.
“The KDF and our border patrol units are manning the borders to ensure there is no interference from any other quarter out there,” said Kianda before touring Garissa Primary School.
The government is aware of the security concerns within the volatile Kerio Valley triangle and has put measures in place to ensure that the exercise does not disrupt.
“We have various unfortunate incidences of insecurity in a few parts of the country and security organs of the country are seized of the matter.
"Adequate security has been put in place and indeed a child who does an examination in such environments is a bit tense but as a balance, the government has assured them 100 per cent transition,” said Chief Administrative Secretary for Education (CAS) Dr Sara Ruto.
Mobile phone use in examination rooms has been prohibited by Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha.

He deemed the move to be unacceptable, stating that it is unfortunate that a few incidents can derail otherwise progressive exams.
