Candidates who sat for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education might be forced to wait longer for the release of their exams after it is reported that those responsible for marking their papers have downed their tools.
Extract from Nation Newspaper
The ministry of education is facing a major crisis following revelations that examiners responsible for marking this year’s KCSE papers are demanding a pay rise to continue with the process of marking the papers. This might in turn affect earlier plans by the ministry of education to announce the results in the coming days.
Schools are expected to open next week with all eyes now on the cabinet secretary in charge of education George Magoha to try and resolve the pending crisis which might affect the opening of schools and institutions of higher learning.
The ministry is yet to issue a formal communication on the same although media outlets across the country have confirmed that the marking of papers has stopped for the better part of today in protest of the little amount of money paid to them.
