KDF To Escort KCSE Examination Papers In Troubled Region.
Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) officers have been assigned to distribute Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) papers in the troubled Lamu County, where militants linked to the Al Shabaab terror group have carried out sporadic attacks in recent times.
The military, according to Regional Commissioner John Elung’ata, was part of a multi-agency team deployed to ensure that security was beefed up to ensure the integrity of the examinations and the safety of candidates and other officials involved in the exercise.
“The examination centres are safe because of the multi-agency effort we have employed. In places such as Lamu East, KDF is supporting police officers and ourselves to deliver the exams to ensure that the exams are safely administered and returned to the containers,” he stressed.
Elung’ata said all examination centers in the region were secure while speaking at the Kakoneni Girls Secondary School in Malindi Sub County, Kilifi County, after witnessing the distribution of examination papers at the Malindi Deputy County Commissioner’s office.

He stated that the regional security and intelligence team had not received any reports regarding examination and candidate safety as of yet, but added that the team was on high alert and would assess each situation as the days progressed.
Last Friday, suspected terrorists ambushed a construction site near the Somalia border in Lamu County, killing five people, including a Chinese national, raising fears among locals.

Elung’ata, on the other hand, assured residents that security agents were on high alert and expressed confidence that the exams would go off without a hitch.
“We are confident that with the strategies in place, the examinations will be administered to the very end without any hitches,” he said.
He stated that a total of 52,015 candidates were taking the 2021 KCSE exams across the region’s six counties, with 25,864 girls and 26,151 boys.
He stated that the campaign for the rights of the girl child had begun to bear fruit because more girls were sitting KCSE examinations and that if the trend continued, gender parity would be achieved soon.
