Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) has faulted the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) for poor preparations ahead of the marking of exams in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic.
KUPPET Secretary General Akelo Misori says the Council is conducting examinations in the normal atmosphere without any further input from them.
Misori says schools have not received capitation funds making it hard to run schools.
He says schools will not be comfortable carrying out the examination exercise without adequate funds to run the schools.
Speaking to the press in Kisumu, Misori says the Council was better placed to ensure schools are adequately funded before the start of the examinations.
He says teachers have been notified to be ready for the marking of the examinations in the previous centers without making any improvement.
Misori says the centers will be congested with teachers during the marking period and will make them prone to contracting the virus which is now in its third wave.
He told the Council to include more marking centers and be able to conform to the Ministry of Health protocols to cushion teachers from the virus.
