A police truck transporting exam papers to several schools in the lower areas of Thangatha ward in Tigania East, Meru got stuck in mud on Monday leading to exam delays in the area.
The truck veered off the road due to heavy on the pathetic Ngumba place close to Kunati market.
Area Deputy County Commissioner Jackton Oriengy has confirmed the unfortunate incident noting that the administration is trying its best to make sure the papers reach their destinations.
"We are finding the solution out. Transportation along Thangatha Ward roads is hectic and a major challenge due to bad roads occasioned continuing heavy downpours," he said.
Oriengy said the papers had arrived after alternative arrangements.
He, however, could not ascertain how many exam centres were affected because the truck had carried exams belonging to several centres.
More than 3.5 million candidates will sit for this year's exams which will run from October 30 to November 24 with KCPE and KPSEA ending on November 1.
After 38 years, the curtains will finally fall on the Kenya Certificate for Primary Education Examinations (KCPE) exams as the last cohort sits the tests.
Some 1,415, 315 candidates will sit the last KCPE beginning Monday as the nearly four-decades-old 8-4-4 system is phased out.
The ministry is replacing the 8-4-4 curriculum with the Competency-Based Curriculum which has a 2-6-6-3 system.
The government has rooted the system as the surest way to equip learners with relevant skills.
The 8-4-4 system, which was exam-based and competitive, put a lot of pressure on learners to deliver good results.
