A KCSE candidate at Lwanda Lugari secondary school in Lugari Sub County failed to sit her Thursday examination after being overwhelmed by labor pains.
Confirming the incident Lugari deputy county commissioner William Lenaremo said the candidate started experiencing labor pain on Thursday morning as she prepared to do her Kiswahili paper.
He said she was rushed to Lumakanda County hospital where she spent the whole day whirling in pain without giving birth.
The DCC said arrangements were made for her to sit the day’s examinations at the hospital but she couldn’t manage due to the pain. “We have talked to the doctor at the hospital and he says at the moment she can’t do the examination,” said Lenaremo.
He said they will make an official communication to the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) concerning the incident.
