Unregistered KCSE Candidates Permitted To Take Exam
23 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) candidates at Lugari Primary School in Lugari Constituency had not registered for the examination.
Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) officials were forced to photocopy examination papers for the affected students.
All of the affected students had previously been forced to repeat Class Seven and had only joined Class Eight after their classmates were registered.
Mr Steven Barongo, Western Regional Director of Education, told The Standard over the phone that he was aware of the problem and was attempting to contact the sub-county director of education, who was in a better position to comment.
“We would like to know whether the learners were registered or not and why, we shall share more information immediately we get the brief,” Barongo said.
Mr. John Korir, Elgeyo Marakwet county commissioner, said security had been beefed up in Kerio Valley to allow KCPE candidates to write their papers without disruption.
Korir stated that enough security officers have been deployed to the 33 schools identified as vulnerable in Kerio Valley.
Despite not meeting the Ministry of Education’s requirement of 30 candidates, students from seven primary schools in Marakwet East were allowed to take their exams in their schools.
“’We are prepared as a security team to see proper and secure administration of National examinationS this year. We have deployed enough security, especially in parts of Kerio Valley, and we will closely monitor to avoid any ugly incident,” said Mr Korir.
KCPE examinations, according to Interior CS Fred Matiang’i, are proceeding as planned.
Matiang’i expressed satisfaction with the examination process, stating that no problems had been reported thus far.

“We are working closely with our colleagues in the Ministry of Education,” Matiang’i said.
At 6 a.m., the CS spoke to reporters at the Kithimani deputy county commissioner’s office, where he presided over the opening of KNEC’s container.
On Monday, Matiang’i also oversaw the distribution of the examination in Yatta, Machakos county.
He stated that the government had made adequate provisions to ensure the security and safety of children and teachers.
According to Kenya National Examinations Council CEO (KNEC) David Njeng’ere, candidates should be true to themselves and resist the temptation to bring illegal material.
“It doesn’t help to carry a certificate that reflects grades that are not yours because it will not help you in your life,” Njengere said.
On Monday, the CEO spoke at St Georges Primary School.
“We are assuring them that the exam is about the usual things they have been doing in school, so there’s no need to panic,” he said.
