KCPE Candidates, 2018

All Kenya Certificate of Primary Education candidates will be absorbed after examinations, with some joining secondary schools and others technical training colleges, Deputy President William Ruto has said.

At the same time, Mr Ruto said the Government had already made arrangements for the payment of fees for all those who will be joining secondary schools in 2019.

Those enrolling for technical training will also have their fees paid by the government to the tune of Sh30,000 per year. They will also access loans from the Higher Education Loans’ Board.

He said parents would no longer be burdened by fees payment for their children.

“It has been eight years of learning. I am confident that those were exciting moments for you. I am confident you will emerge victorious in these examinations. Be assured we are going support you as you join form one and beyond,” said the Deputy President.

He spoke while addressing the candidates of Musa Gitau Primary School in Kikuyu, Kiambu County.

As part of the Government’s plan to provide universal healthcare to Kenyans, Mr Ruto said all secondary school students would also enjoy free insurance medical cover.

He said an array of avenues had been created to allow students pursue different careers.

“The available pathways in academia, technical training institutes, among others would enable our youths to tap into their different talents, thereby impacting positively on the government’s development agenda,” he noted.
