The government has begun the process of transferring hundreds of students who are scheduled to take national exams in March 2022.

Rift Valley Regional Commissioner Mohammed Maalim told the press on Sunday, February 20, that he had initiated meetings with Education stakeholders.

He explained that the transfer is intended to ensure that all national examination candidates from both primary and secondary schools take the exams without interruptions.

Banditry attacks on 10 schools in Baringo and Elgeyo Marakwet counties prompted the Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of Education to intervene.

“I have already initiated a meeting with the county commissioners, the regional security intelligence committee and education officials within the course of this week.

“On Thursday (February 17), we will have that meeting so that we put security measures and other logistical arrangements to make sure we have smooth running,” stated Maalim.

The Kenya National Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) will begin on March 12, 2022, and the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) will begin on March 7, 2022.

This development comes just days after 15 Tot High School students were injured in a bandit attack.

On the evening of Thursday, February 17, armed bandits attacked their school buses as they were returning from a school trip.

The driver was killed during the attack on the Tot – Arror Road in Elgeyo Marakwet County. The students were divided into three buses.

In addition, two teachers, a male and female, are in critical condition after being shot multiple times, despite the fact that police have launched a manhunt for the suspects.
