Tension is mounting in certain schools where candidates are still awaiting their results.

Cardinal Otunga school Principal, Albert Ombiro, reported, “I wish to inform the general public that we finally have 100% of the results, and their results are very impressive because all of them are transitioning to the university.”

The school had a total registered candidature of 432, with the last candidate scoring a B-. The Principal noted that the students achieved 6 As, 60 A-, 137 B+, and 26 B-.

Kisii County Commissioner Tom Anjere emphasized collective responsibility for school performance, stating, “All of us need to take responsibility if the school has not done well, it’s not just the candidate, it is all the stakeholders…so let us not get to this misadvice of chasing the principal on the basis of poor performance.”

In Migori County, Mabera Secondary School also received their previously withheld results from the examination body.

However, tension is high in Nandi County’s Samoei Secondary School, which is still awaiting its results. MP Benard Kutur expressed displeasure with the Ministry of Education for withholding the results without prior investigations.

“There was no hurry of releasing results without being conscious of people and the suffering parents are going through…you should have done investigations before saying these results have been cancelled because now you’re holding students to ransom as others are celebrating…everybody is in limbo,” remarked the Nandi Hills lawmaker.

KNEC flagged results for a total of 4113 candidates over suspected exam malpractice. The fate of these candidates was to be determined by a special committee formed by the Ministry of Education, where principals of affected schools were to be questioned regarding their claims.
