As the 2014 candidates received their results today, it was a mixture of agony and celebration among the recipients. Fist, the shocker came when the Cabinet Secretary for education said that it was very unfortunate for five National Schools being involved in exam malpractices. We went digging and found out one of the said schools.
Chavakali High School located within Vihiga County has three subjects cancelled for all the 307 candidates who sat for last years examinations. Last year, the school bounced in the top ten lists emerging eighth national during the ranking of the 2013 exams, with a mean of 10.7, an A-.
Despite this, the school has been aired as the number five countrywide school among the local stations. This has made the school to got into a state of confusion as they try finding out why the students who have been using the 22252 service are getting surprising texts of cancelled results.
It is not yet clear why the Mathematics, Physics and English results of the said school, ended up being cancelled. The Principal, Mr. Indimuli Kahis, decided to send the following text message to the parents to calm them:
“Parents of 2014 candidates, the KCSE results seem to have a problem, kindly be patient as the school, waits for details.”
It has also emerged that the principle has took a flight to Nairobi together with his Board of Governors to try and resolve the issue.
Speaking to Magazine Reel, some of the affected students from the school expressed their dissatisfaction with Mitihani House for not explaining to them why their results have been cancelled and yet the media is ranking them among the top performers already. They are hoping that the issue will be resolved soon and their results released in full.
