Some 30 students in Molo sub-county have not managed to sit for their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) national examination.
This was said by the area sub-county director of education, Sylvester Musikoyo who noted that 26 are from the regular secondary schools while four are from the adult education section.
Attributing the above to the increased venture into the bodaboda business, Musikoyo observed that there was a need for prioritizing education to help improve their livelihoods in the future.
However, he did not rule out other reasons that might have contributed to one in failing to sit for the national examinations such as illness, death, delivery during the examination period among others saying that they will look into the matter.
School principals have been involved and are set to work closely with the area chiefs to ensure that the numbers decrease and have more students getting involved up to the finish line to enable a smooth transition to higher levels of education.
From the 831, 015 candidates sitting for their examinations this year, 4, 876 are from Molo sub-county where 2,351 are boys and 2,525 are girls. There are 39 examination centres.
