A teacher involved in marking this year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education examinations died on Tuesday night after he collapsed.
The incident comes as the Kenya National Examination Council enters the homestretch on the marking exercise that commenced at the onset of November.
The deceased has been identified as Robert Kiua Muindi, an English teacher at Tusunini Primary School in Makueni county, and was undertaking the marking exercise at Alliance High School.
The school is one of the ten stations Knec is using for the exercise.
Knec chairman John Onsati in a statement on Tuesday said Muindi collapsed at the marking centre and was pronounced dead on arrival at Kikuyu PCEA Mission Hospital.
Details on what the teacher might have suffered and circumstances that led to his death still remain scanty.
