The state has reached an agreement with the union to avoid a strike during the period of national exams.

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has stated that the administration of national examinations, which begin next week, will go smoothly.

Prof Magoha stated that the government reached an agreement with the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) to avoid a strike that would have disrupted the exams.

The union had threatened to strike after the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) refused to begin talks on renegotiating the 2021-2025 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

Magoha, on the other hand, stated that everything is set for the exams.

“As the head of the education sector and as the father and grandfather of all the children, I have already reached out to Kuppet to call off the strike, and I can assure you that exams will be held,” Magoha said at Kiambu’s Karibaribi Secondary School.

Magoha stated that the tests will begin as planned next week.
