Interior CS Fred Matiang'i oversing start of KCPE exams

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has ordered for disciplinary action be taken against the headteacher of NYS Primary School, Gilgil.

Dr Matiang’i took action over the headteacher after the CS evacuated students from a classroom with a leaking roof.

The teacher faces sanction for failing to alert relevant authorities that four classrooms needed urgent renovations to avoid putting pupils’ lives in danger.

The Interior CS further urged the county director of education to ensure that the school is allocated funds to renovate affected classrooms.

Measures to help KCPE

Over one million candidates across the country begin their three-day exams across thousands of examination centres on Tuesday.

Candidates are sitting for the mathematics and English papers in the morning and write English composition in the afternoon.

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha assured the country that the government had set aside extra resources, including helicopters, to ensure the examination papers get to the centres safely and on time.

Four-wheel-drive vehicles, boats and helicopters have been mobilised to transport examination materials to areas that have been rendered inaccessible by floods.
