The March 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examinations are supposed to be marked after candidates complete sitting for them.
However, teachers were very worried about how they could access examination marking centers as some of them are in the marked areas, Nairobi.
The worry was that they could not be able to get in to these areas after President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Friday March 26th directive of lockdown.
The Teachers Service Commission has come out to clarify and give hope to the more than 7,000 teachers who are supposed to be markers by the end of April.
Today, TSC Boss Mrs. Nancy Macharia stipulated that all teachers will be given a special pass to get to the marking centers.
Speaking on news channels, TSC Boss Nancy Macharia also assured teachers that the Covid-19 protocols put in place will be followed as well as this will ensure that all teachers are vaccinated.
She was quoted saying; “The commission has already issued guidelines that emphasize the need for all teachers who will be involved in the examination exercise to comply with all COVID-19 mitigation measures provided by the Ministry of Health. As well as they will have special passes to get them to the centers.”
This assurance comes as a great relief to teachers who thought that they won’t be able to get to their hustle which they are used to.
