Payment Of 2022 KNEC Examiners. The government would start paying examiners’ dues for the 2022 national exams administered by the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) this week, according to Education CS Ezekiel Machogu.
According to CS Machogu, Sh. 2 billion had been set aside for this purpose in order to make sure that all unpaid invoices to suppliers, contract authorities, and KNEC examiners were paid.
Gitonga Mukunji, the local MP, gave a speech during the first-ever Education Day on Saturday at Kangaru School in Manyatta Constituency, Embu.
The CS said that to ensure that such delays do not recur in the future, his ministry will prioritise prompt payment to examiners.
Machogu added that as of last week, they had begun paying the Sh. 2.5 billion owed to the contractors who had constructed the Competence Based Curriculum (CBC) courses.
He stated that in order to reduce the student-teacher ratio, the ministry will hire 24, 000 additional teachers this fiscal year in addition to the 36,000 that were hired last year.
He applauded the MP’s idea, under which secondary school kids will receive career guidance and counseling from a range of stakeholders and specialists,

Furthermore, he noted that it is a game-changer in selecting the young minds’ future professional pathways.
The CS urged other constituencies to follow suit in order to give children job knowledge early enough in their educational careers in accordance with their skills and qualities.
He argued in favor of bringing back school rankings in national tests, saying that doing so would bring back the competitive environment that was good for students.
In order to expose kids to the world of online employment early in life, he continued, he had launched a digitization initiative in all public elementary and secondary schools.
The proposal, according to Mukunji, calls for the construction of internet-connected computer labs.
Gabriel Kagombe, the representative for Gatundu South, and EALA member Maina Karobia were also in attendance.
