Payment Details Of 2022 KNEC Examiners. Now, teachers who helped with the administration of the 2022 national exams will have to wait until the end of the month to start receiving payment.
A total of 28,408 teachers were employed as center managers, 28,727 as supervisors, 74,990 as invigilators, and 5,647 as examiners for the 2022 examinations and assessments.
Initially, teachers were pleased and anxiously awaited the payment of their dues, which was earlier promised by Ezekiel Machogu, cabinet secretary for education.
The government will begin collecting the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) examiners’ fees for the 2022 examinations this week on Monday, according to Machogu.
Speaking on Saturday during the inaugural Education Day by area MP Gitonga Mukunji at Kangaru School in Manyatta Constituency, Embu County, the CS said Ksh. 2 billion has been set aside to ensure that KNEC examiners, contracted officials and suppliers’ debt is cleared.
Machogu said moving forward, his ministry will prioritize prompt payment to examiners to ensure no such delays will be experienced again.
Additionally, CS Machogu said they had from last week started paying contractors who undertook construction of Competence Based Curriculum (CBC) classes their dues which had mounted to Ksh.2.5 billion.

He further added that the ministry will be employing 25,000 teachers this financial year being an addition to the 30,000 employed last year to reduce student-teacher ratio.
“…we have also for the first time in many years been able to employ 36,000 teachers last financial year. This year alone the government will employ 24,000 teachers, a number that we’ve not had for a long time this is because the president is able to recognize that we need to have enough teachers for proper quality teaching to go on,” the Education CS added.
Gitonga Mukunji, a Manyatta Member of Parliament, and other influential figures who were present praised the program and predicted that it would revolutionize how young people choose their future careers.
The digitization of our schools is another project that is slated to begin soon. In addition, Mukunji stated that “Nataka kuhakikisha kila day secondary school iko na computer na wototo wanaweza kutumia computers mapema.”
