Four KCPE candidates have been forced to sit for their national exams at separate hospitals after delivering hours to the onset of the examinations.
The candidates hail from Nakuru, Bomet and Nakuru Counties.
In the first incident, the girl from Oloisailal Primary School in Transmara West sub-county completed her first paper at Lolgorian District Hospital after giving birth yesterday night. She was consequently admitted at the hospital’s maternity ward from where she took her examination.
Confirming the incident, the area County Director of Education Philip Wambua said the candidate was in stable condition since she gave birth naturally.
Mulot Primary School in Narok West was neither spared.
A candidate was rushed to the nearest Longisa District Hospital located in Bomet County after going into labour on Friday.
She gave birth last night through caesarian section. The girl sat for the paper after education officials confirmed that she was stable.
In Nakuru County, a similar scenario was experienced at Emitik Primary School in Kuresoi South after a candidate was obliged to write her KCPE at Olenguruone Hospital. She gave birth to a bubbly baby girl.
KNEC Supervisors have since been directed to supply all examination papers at Olenguruone Hospital.
