Exams Cancelled After Kenyan Politician Puts Face On Papers

Mock primary school exams in part of western Kenya were cancelled Wednesday after a local politician had his face printed on the publicly-funded examination papers.

Cornel Rasanga's smiling, avuncular likeness was printed in the top right corner of mock exam papers distributed at regional primary schools this week.
On Wednesday local media reported Kenya's education minister had cancelled the mock exams and said officials involved would be punished.

The 59-year-old opposition governor of Siaya County on the shores of Lake Victoria was criticised for reportedly spending $17,000 (15,000 euros) of county funds in an apparent attempt to win the early support of future voters.

However, local education chief Pamela Akello defended her boss saying it is important that school children know who their governor is and that since the county sponsored the mock exams it was fitting that Rasanga's face should appear on the papers.

"The move to place the governor's portrait on the examination papers is just," Akello told the Daily Nation newspaper, adding children should "know their governor and have a closer relation with him."
Rasanga has so far stayed quiet on the controversy.

  1. Lmao @ children should know their governor and have a close relation with him. Kenyan politicians are like Nigerian politicians

  2. hahahaha what a laughable project.

    The politician is not serious at all.

    I saw in my area one politician giving free rides to students in his Molue Bus with his name pasted on it. I am sure he is from PDP. I was told they want to do local government election

  3. Only in Africa that such things can ever happen. e.g Obiano's face on bag of rice. Just imagine Mark Nsukabag's face all over Facebook.

    1. Nsukabag?? Mark must be an indigen of your state

  4. You don see am? When some people keep blurring the lines after a while, they begin to believe their own foolishness. You see the hailers in this stories defending the undefendable? Africa never understand that things should be either right or wrong. Sebi here in Nigeria we are gradually getting to this stage. It's right if it is done by a political party we are affiliated with or have a soft spot for. Of course this wasn't the first thing, it all started from smaller and so call less important matters. Now it has gotten to a stage kids can no longer concentrate on their exam, they have to look at a governor face staring at them in a tensed examination hall. #Isalright
