The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has threatened to boycott the 2023 national examinations over the delayed payment of 2022 KCPE, KPSEA and KCSE Supervisors, Invigilators and Markers.
KNUT Secretary General Collins Oyuu noted that despite the payment being factored into the budget, the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) was yet to make the payments.
“Teachers will not be involved in 2023 KCPE, KPSEA, and KCSE exam processes and procedures if payment to Supervisors, Invigilators and Markers is not made. All our requests for clarification to them have fallen on deaf ears,” he said.
He said that teachers who administered the examinations have confirmed that they have not been paid and that they will not take part in this year’s examinations.
Further, Deputy Principals have demanded for transport allowances to facilitate them during the examination period.
KNUT set the rehearsal date for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) examinations for Friday, October 27, 2023.
KCPE and KPSEA exams will take place from October 30 to November 1, 2023
On the other hand, Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) rehearsals are set for Thursday, October 19, 2023 while the exams are scheduled to end on Friday, November 24, 2023 with the Physics practical paper.
