Armed officer keeps vigil as KCSE candidates were doing their Maths paper on November 7th 2016
Four MPs are among candidates sitting KCSE exams in the North Rift.
The MPs from various parts of the country are sitting exams in schools within Uasin Gishu and Baringo counties, which are registered as private exam centres.
Director of the Acacia Adult Education School Benjamin Cheboi yesterday said the MPs had registered under adult education to sit the exams.
He declined, however, to reveal their identities or give more details on the legislators. But the Star established two of the MPs are from Baringo county, one from Uasin Gishu and another one from Bungoma county.
Cheboi did not explain if the MPs were sitting the KCSE exams for first time or are resitting the tests.
“We registered a total of 25 candidates under the adult education programme and we also have leaders, including sitting MPs, who are taking the KCSE exams,” he said.
Cheboi said the MPs requested to privately sit for the exams. He said those from Baringo county had been allowed to sit in Uasin Gishu, while the other two were moved to Baringo for purposes of privacy and to avoid interference.
“The private centres are away from other secondary schools, where other KCSE candidates are taking exams,” Cheboi said. He said cannot reveal their names, as this would amount to exposing them owing to their status.
“May be you can find out on your own. Eventually they will be known at the time the results are released, but at the moment you can find out using your own means,” Cheboi said.
