He said all the necessary Covid-19 measures have been put in place as the examinations continue.
He also called on security officers and education officials to get the Covid-19 vaccine.
The examinations began on Friday the 26th of March where the candidates tackled English papers one and two.
227,000 teachers oversaw the exam process throughout the country as Teachers Service Commission CEO Nancy Macharia urged them to exercise integrity.
The Kenya Secondary School Heads Association National Chairman Kahi Indimuli also appreciated the efforts by the Government in releasing the funds to the schools to ensure smooth running of the exams.
He said, “Those who had taken examination items on loan have paid; those who had not purchased any materials for practical subjects can also do so.”
He added that lack of funds had slowed down the preparations of the exams.
He said, “Some schools had run out of food and this was a major setback especially for the candidates who needed a good studying environment,”
