Interior CS, Dr. Fred Matiang’i has announced that all officers and teachers’ leave days scheduled for October-November will be canceled ahead of National Examinations.

While addressing the Kenya School of Government in Nairobi, CS Matiang’i retaliated that the committment to oversee a bright future of Kenyan school-goers is more important now.

“We are not going to allow any of our security people, especially the senior ones, to take leave because you know this time of the year is when we all have to focus on the welfare of our children,” he said.

The Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams period will be between October 29 and November 27.

The Interior Ministry, according to the CS, will be carrying out regular security checks to ensure that all will go smoothly, and according to plan.

“Every morning, PS Kibicho and I get security reports from across the country. Every County Commissioner files a report every morning and every evening, and we’re in touch with all of them, and I can tell you with authority that we’re fine,” he stated.

Teachers Service Commission (TSC) boss Nancy Macharia on the otherhand has announced that 33,720 teachers will be involved in marking the crucial examinations.
