Kiambu County Commissioner Wilson Wanyanga has warned illegal groups in the county with intentions of interfering with the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations.
Wanyanga warned that the illegal groups infiltrating schools in the county will be dealt with accordingly.
The commissioner said the groups are infiltrating schools under the pretext of conducting a rite of passage for the young boys with the intention of interfering with the ongoing exams.
He said tight security will be provided around schools in the county to prevent cases of disruption of the examination process.
Wanyanga noted that security officers in the region will be vigilant, adding that those who will try to interfere with the exams will be met with the full force of the law.
“The government will not take lightly anybody found interfering with the free flow of KCPE at any cost,” said Wanyanga.
Wanyaga urged those who want to interfere in the ongoing exams in the name of culture to wait until the candidates complete their exams.
He said the groups should let the students focus on the examinations so that they pass and advance to the next level instead of misleading the pupils.
The county commissioner said the candidates will have at least three months after they are done with their exams to undergo the rite of passage.
