Siaya County government has reportedly spent Sh 1. 7 Million to print mock examination papers that contain governor Cornel Rasanga’s portrait.
The portraits appear on the top right side of the mock examination papers meant for primary schools in the county.
County Executive in charge of education Mrs Pamela Okello defended the move saying it is aimed at ensuring that pupils know their governor and have a close relationship with him.
“We are in the process of boosting the performance of our pupils in the next national examination. It is also a campaign tactic by Governor Rasanga for the next general elections, ” explained Mrs Okello.
She was speaking at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology grounds.
She added that similar mock examination papers will be distributed in subsequent years.
