Vandalism and poor structure that was caused by bandits, has made five schools in Baringo county to conduct their exams at one centre.
The head teacher from Cheromongoin Primary School , Elijah Kiptoon explained that the unexpected changes were effected after the schools failed to rebuild the classrooms vandalised by bandits.
He stated,”The schools were vandalised by bandits and the infrastructure requires a lot of rehabilitation.”
Baringo south Member of Parliament (MP) Charles Kamuren also stated that the decision was necessary to ensure all candidates are safe during this examinations period.

He further expressed his optimism on the candidates from the area, stating that regardless of the insecurity state, they will pass their papers.
