  • Police officers have impounded buses of some schools that were caught flaunting Covid-19 rules as they celebrated KCPE performance following its release on Thursday, April 15.

    The police indicated that there was no practice of social distance as the students were taken around the Mukuru kwa Njenga estate in Nairobi County. 

    Drivers too were arrested and will be arraigned in court on Monday, April 18.

    Embakasi Sub-County Commander Francis Kamau vowed that those flaunting the rules would be dealt with accordingly despite their social status.

    “There is no one that is above the law. Hence, if these laws are broken, action will be taken against the individuals,” the commander stated.

    Drivers have been asked to keep the 1.5 metres rule while ferrying passengers in their vehicles, in a bid to curb the spread of Covid-19.

    While delivering his speech on March 26, 2021, President Uhuru Kenyatta urged Kenyans to follow the Covid-19 protocols so that the positivity rate could decline. 

    “I urge all law enforcement officers to live true to their oath of office and discharge their duties without fear or favour in enforcing the containment measures,” the Head of State commanded.

    2020 KCPE candidates in this year’s exam performed better than their counterparts in 2019, Education CS George Magoha stated.

    The administration of KCPE 2020 examinations was done in a unique manner bearing in mind that the world was facing the Covid-19 pandemic and Kenya’s school calendar was affected too. 

    “It is the first time that we are releasing results of KCPE in April. And it’s the first time we release the results when our country is busy managing the effects and spread of Covid-19,” Magoha stated.
