Supervisors and Invigilators of the forthcoming national examination have been advised to observe proper ethical conduct and dress code as they administer the exams.
According to Mrs. Leah Ngugi, a Senior Officer at the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) some supervisors have not been dressing decently causing distraction to candidates sitting the exams.
Mrs. Ngugi who was speaking in Bondo during examination briefing for supervisors disclosed that the council has received numerous complaints across the country about supervisors dressing provocatively causing lapse of concentration especially to male candidates.
She stated that those appointed by the council to supervise or invigilate the exams should dress properly to allow candidates to concentrate on the exams.
The KNEC officer warned that the examination officials wearing tight clothes and stilettos that make noisy sounds as they walk will not be allowed into examination rooms to administer exams this year.
Ngugi on the other hand asked the supervisors and invigilators to ensure that they register online with KNEC as contracted workers before the start of the exams for ease of payment.
She said that only the registered officials will be paid their dues at the end of supervision and invigilation period.
The Bondo Director of Education, Elisha Omala who spoke at the same event assured the public that the sub county preparation for national exams scheduled to start in November are in to gear.
Omala said that all the candidates at the 42 KCSE and 175 KCPE examination centers are adequately prepared for the exams.
He stated that education stakeholders in the sub county will work hand in hand with security officers to ensure that there are no examination irregularities just like it happened last year.
Omala disclosed that his office has already secured a ferry to hasten the transportation examination materials in Lake Victoria islands of Mageta, Sifu, Oyamo and Denda.
