Gusii MPs Uncover KCSE Candidates’ Harassment

Concerns have been raised by lawmakers from Nyamira and Kisii counties regarding disturbing events that occurred during national exams in the Gusii region. Speaking at the Parliament Buildings in Nairobi, ten Members of Parliament (MPs) denounced dehumanizing treatment and unfair profiling, which included intrusive searches of students from the two counties.

Chief whip of the National Assembly Silvanus Osoro questioned the need for searches, expressing concerns that Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu could be embarrassed because the area produced the top KCSE school the year before. Osoro drew attention to disturbances at Nyathwoni Secondary School, where the center manager was allegedly frogmarched by Knec authorities.

The Kitutu Masaba MP, Clive Gisairo, denounced cases in which students were stripped naked, highlighting the pain and infringement of their constitutional rights. Citing an alleged incident at Nyambaria Boys School, he promised legislative action to remedy this violation of the dignity of the kids.

Doris Aburi, a Kisii representative, claimed that intrusive measures create an intimidating atmosphere affecting students’ performance. MPs from Gusii urged Knec to investigate and hold accountable those responsible for violations. They demanded rigorous protocols to uphold students’ dignity during exams.

Representative Jerusha Momanyi of Nyamira Woman questioned the harsh  penalties imposed on pupils, pointing out that tests aren’t life-or-death situations. She pledged to stop similar instances from happening again and voiced concern  about the intentions of the officials. The Borabu MP Patrick Osero questioned if Nyamira and Kisii schools would be  subject to unfair searches if their prior test results were bad.
