He added that security has been beefed up in Marsabit and Isiolo and assured students and their parents that the government had everything in place to ensure a secure and credible examination.

He assured the students that they would all transit to secondary schools whatever the outcome in the exams, adding that the government had made arrangements to ensure all pupils proceed to secondary schools.
