KCSE and KCPE Examiners 2022 to Receive their Dues after Govt Disburses Kshs 2Billion
KCSE and KCPE Examiners 2022 to Receive their Dues after Govt Disburses Kshs2 Billion. The long-awaited process of the government paying the debt owed to the examiners, hired personnel, and suppliers of the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has begun.
At Kangaru School in Manyatta Constituency, Embu County, Education CS gave a speech. Ezekiel Machogu said that the Ksh2.5 billion in debts owing by teachers who took part in national exams and contractors who built Competence Based Curriculum (CBC) classrooms had started to be paid by the council.
About 1,950 contractors that built the CBC classes across the country have received payment as of last week. If you haven’t received your dues, he said, you can go to the County Director of Education to get paid.
Machogu noted that the delay was brought on by the council’s need to retain the unpaid bill on file for more than seven months after the procedure was complete due to a cash shortage.
He added that in order to avoid any delays, he will emphasize paying examiners on time.
The CS added that the ministry will hire 24,000 instructors for the current fiscal year. The 36,000 workers from the previous year will grow as a result.
The event was organized by local MP Gitonga Mukunji with the intention of honoring the top academic schools and students.

Payment of the academics who oversaw, invigilated, and marked the 2022 national tests had been delayed since there was no clear indication of when the dues would be paid out.
The teachers who hadn’t been paid earlier in the year were protected by newly elected Senator Esther Okenyuri in the Senate. She requested an explanation for the reason why the government was taking so long to distribute the funds.
The National Examination Council (KNEC) employed 28,408 teachers as center administrators, 28,727 teachers as supervisors, 5,647 teachers as teachers, 74,990 invigilators, and 5,647 examiners.
KCSE supervisors get Ksh2,485 per day, compared to invigilators’ Ksh1,615 per day. Security personnel are paid Ksh1,050, while drivers are paid Ksh1,040.
The 28,408 hired KCSE center managers receive wages of Ksh 2,000 each day for 18 days, or Ksh 36,000.
