A candidate for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination at Igunga Secondary School in Vihiga County who had been expelled has been allowed back to do her final exams.
The expulsion meant she would sit the exams from outside the school, but now she can do them under stringent conditions. Together with other girls, she had been accused of lesbianism.
The candidate’s father Reuben Oyamo said his daughter was allowed back after involving the school board, the sub-county education office, and guards.
Oyamo however said he has been told to clear the remaining fees before the student completes the tests.
Vihiga County Director of Education David Koech visited the school for a fact-finding mission and directed that the student be readmitted and sit her exams.
He said exams should be given priority and advised the parents to arrange how they will clear the fees arrears.
