Rift Valley Regional Commissioner Mohammed Maalim has promised parents and KCPE candidates of areas affected with insecurity that no candidate will miss the forthcoming national examinations due to the vice.

Speaking during a peace dialogue meeting in Loruk area of Baringo County, the RC assured parents that security will be provided at the examination centre to allow the candidates to do their exams peacefully.

County commissioner Abdirsack Jaldesa confirmed that security measures had been put in place to ensure that candidates complete their examinations in peace.

He added that other measures include provision of meals and accommodation to day-scholars in some examination centres so as to reduce unnecessary movements during examinations.

Maalim who was accompanied by Rift Valley Regional security team, Baringo County security team and area political leaders assured that no child will miss the national exams due to insecurity stating that they had merged candidates from different schools.

Mohammed, however, regretted that young children were recruited by bandits in the areas.

“It is unfortunate that young children are used as cattle rustlers instead of being in school, something that should not be encouraged, during this era,” he said.

He further tasked chiefs with ensuring that all children within their locations go back to school as it would lessen banditry in the region.
