Bungoma county director of Education, Ng’oma, confirmed that a number of 54,859 students are sitting for KPSEA.
He also indicated that another 75,047 are sitting for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE).
Ng’oma reported timely arrivals by all centre managers to collect examination papers for schools throughout Bungoma.
He stressed his confidence in the process, stating, “I have my officers on the ground manning the examination in all Bungoma schools, I have no doubt.”
Collaborating with the ministry of education and security teams, stringent measures have been put in place to deter any potential malpractices.
“We are going to have 24 hours surveillance in all schools to ensure that nobody takes part in exams cheating. If anybody is caught in any exam irregularity, they will face the rough side of the law,” warned Ng’oma.
Meanwhile, Bungoma County Commissioner, Thomas Sankei, highlighted concerns over roads, especially in the Mt. Elgon area, urging timely transportation for the exams.
