President Uhuru Kenyatta brightened the day for Westlands Primary School KCPE exam candidates when he paid them a surprise visit ahead of their exams on Wednesday morning.
Mr Kenyatta and Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i inspected the examination materials and process.
The excited pupils and teachers crowded around the President as he shook their hands in a picture shared through his social media pages.
Other photos of him addressing the school, inspecting exam materials and talking to the pupils as they waited for their exam papers at their desks, were also put up on the Internet.
“We have done everything we can to ensure that your exams are going to be done in an orderly and transparent manner so that every single child in Kenya has an equal opportunity,” said the President.
