We Don’t Have Funds, KNEC Tells KCSE Examiners

Kenya National Examinations Council has confirmed that KCSE 2022 examiners will NOT be paid, until the council receives funds.

KNEC chief executive officer David Njengere was speaking before the Public Investments Committee on Education and Governance.

“We administer exams then pay in advance, and the balance is paid later. As soon as we get the supplementary budget from the Treasury we will pay the examiners,” he said.

According to Njengere, the funding deficit has crippled activities like examiners’ payments.

“We would have already paid the examiners for the work they did, we just don’t have money,” Njengere said.

The committee chair Wanami Wamboka said the team seeks to ensure the council is well-funded.

“It’s in our best interest to ensure that KNEC is well funded and remains afloat,” Wamboka said.

Last week, the secondary school teachers union gave KNEC two weeks to pay examiners who took part in the 2022 KCSE marking.

In a statement, Kuppet chair Omboko Milemba said the council has delayed the release of payment for two months.

“More than 50,000 examiners who marked the papers have not been paid their wages. This is despite the huge sacrifices the examiners made, “Milemba said.

The union chair further faulted the council for subjecting the examiners to not-so-good conditions during the marking process.
