ACCUSED OF SABOTAGING HELP TO NEEDY PUPILS
Lewa accused Marwa of sabotaging the programme, which could have helped needy pupils. Addressing the media at St Augustine’s Primary School in Tudor, he said they will hold the national government accountable for the pupils’ performance. Lewa said many candidates are disappointed by Marwa’s directive, which he termed dictatorial, insensitive, inhumane and likely to undermine the outcome of the exams. He said the Kenya National Examination Council allowed the county to distribute food to schools. “We know this will adversely affect the candidates’ concentration and ability to perform,” Lewa said. He said the county director of education declined to pick their calls. Sharrif Nassir Foundation project coordinator Ali Naaman said following the directive, they have decided to distribute the free parked lunch to orphanages, street families and needy residents.
