President Uhuru Kenyatta sent a heartwarming message to Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) candidates ahead of the national exam.
In a post by State House, the president on Monday night, October 28, encouraged the candidates to face the exams head-on.
"My prayers and best wishes to you all as you sit for the KCPE and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations," he began.
"As I always tell you, remember that examinations are not the end but rather a step towards the dreams and aspirations you all have for your future," the president added.
KCPE is set to begin on Tuesday, October 29 as from 8:00 am, and will come to a close on Thursday, October 31.
The president further disclosed that his administration had made a significant step towards creating a positive environment within the education sector, for the youth with increased facilities for secondary education, university, colleges, and TVETs.
"I believe in you, and I know you have been imparted with adequate knowledge and information for the task ahead of you," his message read in part.
Uhuru also sternly warned the candidates against cheating, urging them to trust in their hard work and believe that their integrity and honesty would help nurture their abilities and talents.
Many county commissioners on Tuesday morning witnessed the opening of the sealed exam containers.
Education Cabinet Secretary Professor George Magoha on live TV assured that the examinations would be taken to hospital for candidates who are sick or expectant.
