The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) on Friday, March 10 issued a directive affecting all 4,700 individuals with uncollected certificates.
In a statement, KNEC noted that the certificates, dating back to 2001, belong both to those who sat for the Kenya Certificate for Secondary Education (KCSE) and Kenya Certificate for Primary Education (KCPE).
According to KNEC, all those whose names appear on the two lists should trade in their faulty certificates for new ones.
