*EXAMINERS IN NAIROBI MARKING KCSE TAKE TO THE STREETS TO DEMAND FOR PAYMENT AND BETTER SERVICES
By Amunga Peter.
Teachers marking KCSE exams at Moi Girls in Nairobi on Monday, May 3, downed their tools and took to the streets to lament over unpaid allowances.
Armed with chants, 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 seen police officers could be seen trying to calm the situation.
The strike comes at a time when Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha had declared that the ministry was on schedule to complete marking the KCSE results. He affirmed that the ministry would release the results on Monday, May 10.
We had expected the government to have already made provisions that exam centers be expanded due to Covid-19 protocols. The current regime is that there’s a lot of congestion among the teachers. The situation in marking centers is deplorable.
