A nationwide campaign dubbed "the last mile form one admission campaign towards 100% transition" has been officially launched in Mombasa.

Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Education Dr Belio Kipsang while launching the campaign at the Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zeyd School, directed all school heads and provincial administrators to ensure that all pupils who sat for the 2018 KCPE are enrolled in secondary schools. 

Kipsang tasked all stakeholders including teachers, parents, chiefs, regional and county commissioners to take up the responsibility and help in ensuring 100% transition of all pupils who sat for KCPE last year from various regions across the country.
