Three Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam candidates from Moi Girls High School in Eldoret who had been kicked out have been allowed back to the institution.

The three have been spending their nights in a lodging as they sit their exams.

Uasin Gishu County Director of Education Gitonga Mbaka on Tuesday evening told the Nation that the girls had been readmitted to the school after spending several days in the lodging.

GUESTHOUSE

"I can confirm that we have successfully readmitted them back to school so that they can join the rest of their colleagues in sitting the national examinations," Mr Mbaka said in a phone conversation.

This came hours after the Nation aired the plight of the candidates who said they travel to the school from the guesthouse every morning to do the national exams and then go back in the evening.

Two of the girls claimed they were accused of being undisciplined and were expelled last week. The third one said she was sent home in second term.

DISCRIMINATION

In an earlier interview with the Nation at the guesthouse where they were putting up, the students denied that they were undisciplined and accused the school's administration of discriminating against them.

“I was accused of harassing a prefect and now I feel depressed because I feel bad being away from school,” said one of the girls.

The second student said that she was expelled from school in second term and did not attended classes in third term.

“I was expelled because I was found in possession of a knife for cutting fruits and was accused of bullying,” she said.
