However, Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha had assured the candidates that all shall be well adding that the told the government is aware that they were at home for nine months when he visited Chavakali High School.

“Do not worry about the examination. We are aware you were at home for nine months, so your hope must remain alive. Do not get stressed. If you believe in God, you will all pass,” Magokha said.
