“After alerting my office, I assigned law enforcement agents to go to the school and investigate the allegations. Preliminary report shows there was negligence on the side of the center manager, two supervisors and an invigilator, given they allowed the four teachers to access the school, which is against KNEC ‘s exam supervision regulations,”
“We have asked the Teachers’ Service Commission to take disciplinary action against the eight. Tomorrow [Thursday, October 31], a new team will be deployed to supervise the Social Studies paper at Hezta Primary School,” said Cherutich.
The exams have been running as planned according to the Ministry of Education with the heavy rains being the main challenge.
