The Kenya National Examinations Council, Knec, has started paying examiners who marked the 2020 KCSE their dues. This process will see all the Knec contracted professionals receive their payments.
This payment comes after many months of delays after the official release of the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCsE) examinations.
The Council attributes the lateness in payment of the Supervision dues to the hectic process of reconciling the contracted professionals’ data.
The Council has taken some time to retrieve the details from the attendance registers that were marked during the examinations administration process.
According to Payment details released by the Council, Primary school head who will act as Centre Managers for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education, KCPE, exams will pocket a daily subsistence allowance of Sh500, for a total of 4 days (including rehearsal day).
The exams were done between Monday March 22, 2021 to Wednesday March 24, 2021.
The Council again failed to factor payment for Deputy Head Teachers and Deputy Principals despite the fact that they were present during the examination period as assistant Centre Managers.
Also walking home empty handed are teachers handling science subjects who prepared and administered practicals during the KCSE examinations.
Having worked for a full month in a very strenuous exercise to ensure that the deadline that was set has been met, the teachers (examiners) who marked the 2020 KCSE Exams have the reasons to smile while going to the bank after the Kenya National Examination Council paid their allowances.
The KCSE marking exercises can be termed by examiners as the worst experience because of the pressure that the cabinet secretary of Education piled on them. Teachers were to start and finish marking within ten days.
“Finally we can eat the fruits of our hard labor even though it is little”, one examiner has confessed.
