It was dis­ser­vice to deny refugees chance to sit exam

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

Some 289 refugee can­di­dates failed to sit this year’s KCSE and KCPE due to the on­go­ing repa­tri­a­tion. One hun­dred and sixty-nine of those were KCSE can­di­dates. Most of the KCSE can­di­dates who did not sit the ex­ams were in the Ha­gadera camp (74), while in the Da­ga­ha­ley camp, 61 KCPE can­di­dates missed the ex­ams. This was a dis­ser­vice to the stu­dents, who, if they sat this exam, would have had a cer­tifi­cate to pro­pel them to higher ed­u­ca­tion heights and make change in their coun­try.
