Nyambaria School Principal Suspended. Charles Onyari, the principal of Nyambaria High School, was suspended by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) on Tuesday from his position as the center manager for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams.
With a mean score of 10.89, Nyambaria Boys High School, situated in Nyamira County, garnered notice for being the top-ranked school in the 2022 KCSE exams.
According to reports, the high school principal’s suspension is temporary until an inquiry into potential irregularities during the tests is conducted.
Nyambaria received four A plain grades and 79 A- (minus) scores in the 2021 exam. In 2022, the numbers more than doubled, with students receiving A- (minus) scores rising to 383 and A plain ratings to 28.
According to early reports, the Principal had been brought to the Nyamira Police Station to give a statement regarding examination materials that had been found nearby.
The incident was verified by a school teacher, who declined to be identified in order to maintain anonymity. The instructor said that the incident had no bearing on the tests. There is still no information available regarding the reasons for the Principal’s suspension.
He said, “We’ve been keeping an eye on the DCI’s activities all morning, but they haven’t given us any information about the accusations against the Principal.”
It was also mentioned that two more Nyamira County principals had been suspended because of anomalies in their exams.
