Palpable confusion rented the air at one village in Kakamega county after a KSCE candidate aborted a child while on with her examinations. The candidate opted for doing away with the child so that she could continue with the national exams. Her parents and relatives were left in utter shock after the incident.
The candidate who has been doing her papers seamlessly did not inform any of her family members of her intentions to do so. She is said to have liaised with her close friend who advised her to do away with the unborn child. The baby was found dead in a bush nearby where she is suspected to have done the act.
Her grandmother that was angered by what she did strongly condemned it saying that children are blessings. Her family said that they have been supportive of her and were ready to take care of the child upon delivery.
The Ministry of Education has been working closely with education administrators to ensure that such candidates are specially treated. This year, a good number of them are sitting for their exams without any problems with others doing it from hospitals after giving birth. Professor Magoha says there is no need for panic as they will be given equal chances just like any other students.
