A teacher in Kitui is on government radar for allegedly denying a class eight pupil a chance to do exams despite her mother paying all the kcpe exams registration fees.
James mwendwa wambua – a pupil at Kwa song’e primary school in Kitui south has been denied an opportunity to do the exams for not being in the school’s KCPE exam register.
A poor family from Kwa song’e village, Makele sub location, ikanga location is crying for the child must get justice from the government or anyone who cares to listen, according to the mother.
Kwa song’e primary school head teacher Mr Francis Ivusu and his staffs are in the eyes of the storm. The question is who ‘ate’ the Ksh 300 meant for KCPE exam registration, was it by coincidence or mix-up during the registration?/ we have no idea. Our attempt to reach the head teacher for comments were unfruitful.
The Ministry of Education Prof George Magoha has taken over the matter and said no child will be denied an opportunity to do his or her exams in Kenya and that is what the president Uhuru kenyatta directed.
The Guardian of the child is said to have paid 300 ksh for kcpe Registration but the name of the child was Missing and the child was told to go home.
According to Prof. George Magoha, No child will be denied the opportunity to do exams, other issues can be discussed later, the teacher will be held accountable or punished by the Teachers service commission.
