Ugunja MP Opiyo Wan­dayi has threat­ened to move a mo­tion for the re­moval of Ed­u­ca­tion CS Fred Ma­tiang’i if Si­aya pupils per­forms dis­mally in 2016 KCPE ex­ams. He said stan­dard eight pupils have been sub­jected to “ex­tremely cruel psy­cho­log­i­cal tor­ture” af­ter the mock ex­ams were can­celled mid-way. “I am putting Ma­tiang’i on no­tice that upon re­ceipt of any un­sat­is­fac­tory re­sults of the KCPE ex­ams, I will spon­sor a mo­tion of im­peach­ment against him in the Na­tional Assem­bly,” Wan­dayi said. Ma­tiang’i in­ter­dicted the Si­aya county ed­u­ca­tion di­rec­tor and six other of­fi­cials over the dis­play of Gover­nor Cor­nel Rasanga’s photo on mock exam pa­pers. The CS said the of­fi­cials “bore the great­est re­spon­si­bil­ity for the gross vi­o­la­tion of set guide­lines”. But Wan­dayi said the of­fi­cials were promptly re­placed by per­sons who could only have been po­si­tioned strate­gi­cally on the side, await­ing such asn op­por­tu­nity.
