KSCE examiners have boycotted marking of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) Physics practical at Upper Hill High School, Nairobi.

The teachers are demanding better pay. There has been a go-slow since Thursday, forcing Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) to hold a series of crisis meetings to calm the situation.

Kuppet Deputy Secretary-General Moses Nthurima said despite being subjected to long hours of marking, the teachers were getting little pay.

Mr. Nthurima said teachers in most of the marking centers have boycotted the exercise due to poor pay and alleged threats from their seniors and the exam council. He said the teachers were paid Sh46 per script marked.

The Kenya National Examinations Council CEO Mercy Karogo refuted claims that the examiners are being underpaid.
