2019 KCSE EXAMINER COLLAPSES AND DIES IN NAIROBI (KIKUYU HOSPITAL)
KNEC TO MEET KUPPET OVER 2019 KCSE EXAMINERS’ GRIEVANCES
An examiner who was marking the 2019 KCSE Biology Paper III exam has died.
The examiner, Veronicah Wanjiku collapsed at one of the 2019 KNEC KCSE designated marking centres-Lenana High School in Nairobi.
She was rushed to Kikuyu Hospital but was unfortunately pronounced dead on arrival.
This predicament comes as this year’s KCSE examiners downed their tools last week citing poor working conditions and poor KNEC payment rates per script.
The Council is planning to have a meeting with the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers’ Union, KUPPET, on Tuesday, December 10 to chat the way forward.
The Council has already agreed to adjust the payment rates per script for all the subjects and harmonize payments for all papers effective 2020.
