Uncertainty Over The Release Of KCSE Results After KNEC Mismanages The Marking Centres

Failure by Kenya National Examination Council to pay examiners their allowances has led to the disruption of the marking exercise currently in progress.

Thousands of Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination markers are in Nairobi for the exercise at various marking centres. Unlike the previous years when the exercise has been conducted smoothly with no disruption, this year the examination body has failed to meet the expectation of the examiners.

At Moi Girls' School and State House Girls' the examiners have put down their tools due to the poor remuneration package by the examination body. Report from these centres indicated that the examination body reduced the advance payment made for the exercise from twenty thousands to ten thousands. They also claimed that the reimbursement of the fare used did not match the current rates.

Though the exercise is a very important national exercise, the examination body has continued to carry on it's duties casually. Every year the examiners make complains about the meagre pay and poor living conditions at the marking centres. The protest started by examiners at these centres may spread to other centres totally disrupting the exercise. It's high time the examination body address the situation to avert a crisis that may affect the release of results for the students who sat for 2020 KCSE.
