He spoke in Nakuru after overseeing the opening and distribution of exam materials at the Nakuru East deputy county commissioner’s office.

He said the tests were going on smoothly, with only a few hitches that were easily resolved.

Dr Jwan also clarified that candidates from the 67 schools in Uasin Gishu and Bungoma were sitting their exams in other schools.

He said the learners from private schools – 52 in Uasin Gishu and 15 in Bungoma – whose centre managers failed to collect examination materials were sitting the exams at other centres because their schools were shut down during the Covid-19 lockdown period.

Mr Jwan warned schools against engaging in exam irregularities.

Referring to a school in Nakuru County that is under investigation for allegedly registering candidates who were deemed to be poor performers at different centres, Dr Jwan said the ministry was waiting for a report before taking appropriate action.

“We need to give learners a chance to be children. We do not want to profile them. Our officers are investigating the [case] because we consider that an irregularity,” Dr Juan said.

He urged schools and parents to support and protect learners from abuse by selfish individuals.
