Leaders on Saturday expressed dismay at dismal performance of their children in the just-announced Kenya Certificate of Primary Education exam results.

Judy Pareno, David Nkedianye, Kanchory Memusi and Martin Moshisho.

Two legislators; MP Kanchory Memusi (Kajiado Central) and Senator Judith Pareno (nominated), both speaking at a thanksgiving ceremony of an ODM nominated MCA, Grace Munei, said Kajiado’s KCPE results was a reflection of the worst in many years.

“I am at the lowest moment in my life after looking at those results. It now calls for everyone’s action to change this demeaning trend in this region. We cannot be pulling tails as other regions make to the best schools in the country,” said Memusi.

The MP made a passionate appeal to all education stakeholders, leaders and parents to dedicate time and re-look at how the region has been performing over the years against other regions.

The MP said; “We cannot purport to be in competition with other regions in terms of education and yet our children get dismal marks that cannot take them to good schools. How then, shall we see our children go to universities, how?” asked Memusi.

Memusi said he supports the two-gender rule debate on the floor of the house which aims at increasing number of women in leadership but told women to also seek political positions during elections.

Pareno said she supports the gender rule and the passing of the Bill which is still in Parliament, adding that empowering women will provide balanced leadership in the country.

While commenting on education, Pareno said the root cause of poor performance of Kajiado Maasai children should be retraced and rectified immediately.

“Poor performance of our children makes our future precarious. What is the future of the Maasai girl and boy child without university education?” asked Pareno.

Kajiado deputy governor, Martin Moshisho and a host of members of county assembly led by Onesmus Ngogoyo attended the ceremony.

Meanwhile, nominated Senator Mary Seneta, while commenting on the poor performance in Kajiado schools on phone on Sunday, said education chiefs in the region should be put on the spotlight over dismal performance KCPE examination in rural schools.

Seneta said it is disheartening 55 KCSE candidates this year failed to sit for their examination due to various reasons ranging from early marriages to moranism.

She said 199 KCPE candidates did not also sit for their examination this year because of diversified reasons.

“We want the Ministry of Education department to investigate all those cases and make public reasons why those children never sat for their exams,” said Seneta.
