Pressure piles on MoE to improve schools in North Rift

Pressure is piling on the Ministry of Education (MoE) to upgrade infrastructure in secondary schools in the North Rift region if the performance in national examinations is to be turned around.

Led by Eunice Kogo and Salina Marusoi, residents say that poor infrastructure has affected learning activities and the overall performance.

The parents also want sports amenities set up, noting that nurturing talent should also be promoted.

“We ask the government to address this problem urgently. Our students would have got better results if the infrastructure problem had been addressed,” noted the parents.

Meanwhile, Samoei Boys High School and St. Mary’s Girls Tachasis will wait a few more days to know their results as KNEC continues to review it.

The over 600 students stormed the schools, demanding an explanation from the management.

Parents on their part questioned the grounds for the decision, saying it was agonizing that their massive investment in their children’s education for 4 years could go to waste.

“I am shocked that our candidates have not received their KCSE results because KNEC has decided to withhold them. This is wrong and unacceptable. These students have worked hard and it’s inhuman to deny them their results,” said area MP Bernard Kitur.
