The marking of Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) has today been disrupted following the protest by teachers Marking Christian Religious Education (CRE) paper one. Examiners are protesting over payment and poor working condition. The exercise has been taking place at St. Francis Girls High School.
The current borne of contention is the increment of marking rates from ksh 55 to 100 per script. Early today, KNEC CEO, Dr David Njeng'ere failed to convince the Examiners to resume marking process.
It has forced Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu, TSC boss Dr Nancy Njeri Macharia and Education PS Belio Kipsang to intervene to solve the stalemate.
This is bad news to the candidates who are eagerly waiting for their results. This now puts the release of KCSE as early planned in limbo. Education cabinet secretary Ezekiel Machogu had indicated that the results will be released by the end of this week. However, this may not happen as result of the current stalemate.
