Three students at Moi Girls’ High School in Eldoret are doing their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) while staying outside the school.
The three, all aged 17, have lodged outside the school having been expelled a few weeks to the national exams.
Protesting their expulsion and the fact that they stay outside the school during the examination period, their parents on Tuesday told K24 that they are afraid this will make them record poor performances.
“Our girls are now forced to put up in lodgings throughout the one-month exam period,” one of the parents told K24.
“We now fear that, given the conditions our daughters are studying under, they will, most likely, perform poorly. Honestly, they are traumatized and humiliated,” added another parent.
The three girls come from far places, and that's why they had to lodge a house around their school.
One comes from Eldoret but not near the school while the other two come from Kisii and Kisumu.
The parents of the three have decried the fact that the candidates will have to lodge outside the school for almost a month while doing their national examinations.
They have now called on the Education Minister Prof George Magoha to help them solve the standoff.
Confirming the situation, Uasin Gishu County Director of Education Gitonga Mbaka said that they have launched investigations into this matter.
“We’re investigating claims of alleged mistreatment of the girls. Expect to hear from us on Wednesday, November 6,'' Mbaka said as quoted by K24.
The school principal did not comment on the matter
The KCSE exams begun on Monday across the country.
