Two helicopters to airlift tests to Turkana districts that are inaccessible
Exams will be airlifted to Turkana areas inaccessible by two helicopters
According to the administration, two helicopters would be utilized to airlift the exam materials to Turkana’s remote schools.
According to Turkana County Commissioner Jacob Ouma, the helicopters are ready to transport inspection supplies to regions impacted by poor road conditions and instability.
He said that Turkana is now having rains, which could cause transportation to stop because of poor roads and unrest.
According to Ouma, using helicopters to transport exam materials will allow applicants to conclude their exams on time.
“We have two helicopters to ferry examination materials to inaccessible schools, like Kapedo in Turkana East which has been faced with insecurity,” he stated.
“We have beefed up security by deploying security officers to ensure the candidates sit for their exams without any problem.”
A total of 55,913 candidates, including KPSEA, KCPE, and refugees, are seated for their examination, according to Henry Lubanga, the Director of Education for Turkana.
According to him, 19,175 KPSEA and 20,937 KCPE applicants are in Turkana doing their exams.
According to Lubanga, 9,010 refugee candidates for the KCPE and 6,791 KPSEA are taking their exams in the Kakuma camp.
