700 KCSE markers ordered to leave marking centre

Will KCSE results be out in time?

KUPPET orders teachers marking KCSE at Machakos High School to leave over poor accommodation

The marking of the recently concluded Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination scripts is in jeopardy after 700 teachers marking the papers were ordered to leave Machakos High School marking centre.

The 700 teachers had been involved in protests for two days over what they termed as poor working conditions.

Kenya Union of Post-Primary Teachers (Kuppet) Secretary General Akello Misori confirmed that the teachers had been directed to leave after their grievances went unheard.

Authorities are yet to give a statement on how the matter will be resolved.

2019 KCSE results to be released before Christmas

Education CS George Magoha had assured candidates and their parents that the results of 2019 KCSE would be released before Christmas, which is only three weeks away.

Kuppet challenged the announcement stating that there was no need to mount pressure on markers to compromise on keenness during the exercise in order to beat a deadline.

“We should not use the release of exams hurriedly as a means of setting standards for performance so that so that if Matiangi released after 30 days then Magoha has to release after 20 days to set a new record,” Kuppet Chairman Omboko Milemba stated.
