Helicopters will deliver national exams

In order to send air aid to areas that may be impacted by the impending El Nio rains  during the national examinations in November, the government has unveiled  extensive plans. The Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE), Kenya Primary School  Education Assessment (KPSEA), and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education  Examinations (KCSE) are the three national exams that will be taken by roughly  3.5 million students this year.

El Nio frequently causes East Africa to experience heavy rains and flooding in the months of October, November, and December, according to the Kenya Meteorological Department (KMD) (OND).

This declaration was delivered by Dr. Belio Kipsang, the Principal Secretary for the State Department of Basic Education, during a gathering of education representatives from the coastal area at Mombasa’s Shimo la Tewa High School. He said that they were actively identifying regions vulnerable to interruptions brought on by rain and collaborating with various education and security stakeholders to ensure thorough preparation.

Dr. Kipsang made it clear that they were preparing for the tests in advance of the El Nio rains, with a focus on locating probable flood zones and making sure that exams and invigilators arrived at the exam venues on time. In order to help with the tests, government helicopters from a number of organizations—including the police, military, forestry service, and KWS—would be called upon.

As part of the administrative system of the national government, Regional Commissioners will supervise the mapping activities with County Commissioners and their Deputies.Dr. Kipsang reminded candidates that preparations had been taken to lessen the effects of the anticipated rains, which were forecast with a high degree of certainty, and reiterated the government’s commitment to holding the exams. He emphasized the significance of paying attention to these forecasts and not ignoring the approaching weather event.

Additionally, as Dr. Kipsang revealed, the government has put in place security measures throughout the entire exam time to protect student safety in places prone to security difficulties, including Lamu County.
