The Kenya National Examinations Council, Knec, has started paying Supervisors and Invigilators their dues. This process will see all the Knec contracted professionals receive their payments.
This payment comes a few weeks after the official release of the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCsE) examinations. The Council attributes the lateness in payment of the Supervision dues to the hectic process of reconciling the contracted professionals’ data.
The Council has taken some time to retrieve the details from the attendance registers that were marked during the examinations administration process.
According to Payment details released by the Council, Primary school head who will act as Centre Managers for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education, KCPE, exams will pocket a daily subsistence allowance of Sh500, for a total of 4 days (including rehearsal day).
The exams were done between Monday March 22, 2021 to Wednesday March 24, 2021. On their part, Secondary schools Principals are expected to also earn a daily allowance of Sh500 for 18 days.

The highest paid Supervisor will walk away with a sum total of Sh12,510 while the highest paid invigilator will pocket Sh9860. The KCSE exams started on Friday March 26, 2021 with the last examination day being Wednesday April 21, 2021.
The Council again failed to factor payment for Deputy Head Teachers and Deputy Principals despite the fact that they were present during the examination period as assistant Centre Managers. Also walking home empty handed are teachers handling science subjects who prepared and administered practicals during the KCSE examinations.
Having worked for a full month in a very strenuous exercise to ensure that the deadline that was set has been met, the teachers (examiners) who invigilated, supervised and marked the KCPE have the reasons to smile while going to the bank after the Kenya National Examination Council paid their allowances.

The KCSE marking exercises can be termed by examiners as the worst year because of the pressure that the cabinet secretary of Education piled on them. Teachers were to start and finish marking within ten days.
Even though this was met, many have questioned the accuracy and efficiency of the exercise.
2020 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination and Kenya Certificate of Primary Examination examiners invigilators and supervisors are grateful to the examination body for the payments even though there were delays.
“Finally we can eat the fruits of our hard labor even though it is little”, one examiner has confessed.
