KNUT (Kenya National Union of Teachers) now wants the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) to sort out the mess they have created after many voices rejected the 2023 KCPE results.
Nandi East Executive Secretary Boniface Tenai said the errors have caused panic and compromised the credibility of the entire process.
Addressing the press, Tenai said examiners did a good job and it was wrong for KNEC to mess up the process.
“Examiners did a good job but KNEC is messing up the whole process. It was better to delay and give accurate results rather than hurry and announce the wrong outcomes,” he opined, adding that every candidate should get their rightful marks.
He said as a union, they want KNEC and the Ministry of Education (MoE) to put things straight urgently.
Concerning capitation, the union demanded the speedy release of bursaries and scholarships, saying no child in the country should miss education due to lack of fees.
KNEC has been under fire since the release of the results last week after multiple complaints arose over inconsistencies and errors, as some parents moved to court seeking suspension of the form one selection process.
