KCSE results face delay after several teachers marking exams at Moi Girls went on strike on Monday complaining of delayed allowances.

Armed with songs, the teachers decried their situation arguing that they had resorted to the streets after the government failed to adhere to their plight. In a video, the police officers could be seen trying to calm the situation.

The strike comes at a time when Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha had said the ministry was on schedule to complete the KCSE score marking. He said the ministry would release the results on Monday, May 10.

Magoha was speaking at the Nairobi school when he oversaw the completion of the examination which he had declared 99.9 percent success.

“We experienced a number of cases where examination officials attempted to open the papers with the intention of exposing them to candidates before the actual examinations started

“We thwarted these efforts in a few centers countrywide, some of which I released to you during my weekly briefs,” Magoha stated in a past press briefing.

Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) had initially issued a warning to the government that teachers would boycott the marking of KCSE exams if their needs were not addressed.

According to KUPPET Secretary-General, Akelo Misori had urged the government to release funds for teachers’ allowances and expand examination centers to meet social distancing requirements issued by the health ministry.

“We expected the government to have already made arrangements for examination centers to be expanded due to the Covid-19 protocols. The current regime is that there is a lot of congestion among teachers,” said Misori.

Misori appealed to Magoha to help speed up the release of capitation funds to enable schools to efficiently manage the national exams

His feelings were also echoed by the president of the Kenya Secondary School Leaders Association, Kahi Indimuli, who denounced the situation citing that it would be difficult to manage the national exams due to financial constraints.
