The Cabinet Secretary in charge of the Ministry of Education, Professor George Magoha, has called for the registration of all candidates for the national examinations to be expedited before the closing of May 14, warning teachers who fail to register students for non-completion of the exercise will be dealt with.
Prof Magoha said the time would not be extended and the government would like to know how many students will be taking their exams so that programs can start early.
This year, three national examinations are expected to be held as the government struggles to revise the curriculum which will start in January 2023.
Visiting schools in Kakamega County, Magoha warned school principals that it would be a criminal offense not to register students who have not yet paid their school fees.
Professor Magoha also said he did not want to hear headmasters barring students from joining secondary schools whether it was for lack of fees, uniforms or vacancies.
The founder of the NG-CDF, Elias Mbau, argues that the fund is plagued by corruption that hinders it from fulfilling its mandate of educating smart children from poor families.
"If all the money in the country allocated annually was spent transparently, it would be enough to provide funding for students in need of tuition," he told Taifa Leo.
