Indeed, many examiners were having torrid times trying to decide wether to shun the marking exercise and attend the interviews or not.
“In the circumstances, we urge the Commission to immediately call off the interviews slated for this month and conduct the same in May or on any convenient dates after the marking of the KCSE exams.” Reads a demand letter from Kuppet Secretary General Akello Misori.
